Veldhaus Route is wider and less clean than most of the other routes at the wall and is certainly no destination route. Still, it is OK for a "ticklist" for the route collectors and completists.


Veldhaus Route is the hand and fist crack in a left-facing corner, perhaps 25 meters right of the popular routes, "Right Of Passage, 9" and "Cruising Lane, 10a".


Hands to wide gear for the crack and trees on a huge ledge for the belay. To descend, rap from the tree or take the opportunity to go set anchors on the "Local Color, 10b" toprope and rap that before climbing it.

Dirty but worth more than one star. The finish and the sequence pulling the overhanging flake coming off the ledge both felt Gunks-y.
