Description 

This is the left-most route on the wall. It starts in a left-facing dihedral/chimney with a straight in crack in the main wall. Chimney/stem/jam up to the top of a small pillar, then jam the crack the rest of the way, passing a couple of small pods.

Clean rock, interesting and varied climbing, and good protection. Recommended.

Descend via scrambling to the left (SW) end of wall. If a TR is to be set up, this would also be the best way to get to the top.

Protection 

"Standard rack" for the climb. Finger to hand sizes and a long runner (to sling a horn) for the belay or TR.

Fantastic climbing, mostly hands with a few great fingerlocks, some fun stemming, and big reaches. A giveaway at the grade (for Vedauwoo anyway).
