This route starts in the crack that lies in the center of the large boulder sitting at the base of the Fall Wall. This is a great training crack for mastering the lieback and you really don't need the two enormous chicken heads to the right of the crack anyway. An easy fun route. A two bolt anchor with chains is found at the top of the route.
Medium cams and passive pro will protect this well.

What is this one too lowly for comment!?
A great easy route that will take pro every inch of the way! A bit of a runout to the crack right off the deck, but not bad. The only route at Vedauwoo I've climbed that I thought was over rated for difficulty. 5.4 would be reasonable for this one.

This great route takes bomber pro and is one of the best climbs of its grade at the 'Voo.

I agree; pretty easy for the grade and I'd give it a 5.4 at most. This would be a great beginner trad lead as the gear is obvious, good, and plentiful. I climbed it entirely with tricams, IIRC. Anchor building is not an issue; just clip the chains and you're done.

Fun dihedral route! If it were only 10 pitches long, I might give it another star.

Most of the Fall Wall and Clamshell boulder routes - especially in the 5.5 to 5.7 range, were FA by Jim Halfpenny in the mid-60's, and also several unknown 10th Mountainn Division vets of WW II. The 5.11 crack was originally an aid route and piton scars are the finger-tip holds.

A very easy intro to liebacking at 5.5. Eats trad passive pro--large stoppers. Great climb for beginners at Vedauwoo.

What is the route to the left of E.O. lieback on the same face as Gunga Din but on the right toward the arete? Pretty hard crimps with about 6 bolts. Must be new, because it's not online.

The route to the left of E.O. lieback is named "Busy Being Fabulous". It is in the upper 5.10 range. FA Bob Scarpelli and Mitzi Kenast.
