Description 

This is a very unique problem for Vedauwoo as it is compression climbing out a roof using big positive slopers. This problem is distinct, because it is basically a huge cobble stuck to a roof, and as a result most of the rock on the problem is really fine grained. Start on an undercling feature and slap out the roof, heading out right to exit up the tall easy slab. The start of this problem is low to the ground and as a result you need to keep your feet on. It was named after a bit of graffiti on a nearby rock.


Location 

Drive 700N and take the left turn after 700NA, which is still 700N. Follow this to the large trampled campsite. Walk to the right around the formation staying at the base of the dome until you encounter a dilapidated barbed wire fence. Follow this fence up to the dome and it will lead you almost right to the problem, which is under a low roof on the north side of the dome. It has a great view of Spelunk Spire and the other crags behind Reynold's Hill.


Protection 

A pad or two.

Does anyone have any beta (name, grade) on the roof right above this (at the very top of this top out)? It looks like a lot of fun.

I think it is V6, unnamed?

Two worthy variants to this problem are Louis- a direct finish established by Jesse Brown and Lois Lane- which follows the nice cobbles left under the roof until they run out, then mantles on crystals, established by Devlin Junker.
All 3 problems are about the same difficulty.
