Description:

On the extreme right (west) end of the formation. Starts in a distinctive corner (just right of Grunt Lieback) with an awesome hand crack that gradually widens into an offwidth (at the first bulge) with a fist crack in the back. Continues offwidthing, connecting with Grunt Lieback, to a large ledge. Finish with chimneying or run out slab climbing to double bolt anchor. Two single rope rappels will put you on the ground. ~120'

One of Vedauwoo's harder 5.8s. 5.9 might be a little more appropriate. The top is larger and longer than most people expect; bring a couple of #4 Cams. The climb has its name for a reason, but you can avoid most of the sharper jams for less bomber ones.

Still regaining the lead head. Fixed my #4 camalot at the second bulge.

More offwidth than I was expecting, but easy offwidth. Would have been easier if I'd been wearing pants. Now my knees and ankles look like strawberry jam! Brandon pulled the rope and it got stuck in a one in a million position. Had to climb up the stuck rope with a rap device threaded through the rope to get it unstuck - fortunately it was stuck right below the middle anchors.
