Description:

This route is the chimney to the right of Fantasia. After about 20 feet of squeeze chimney climbing, follow a ramp to a finger crack, mantle the ledge above, then finish with another short finger crack (crux). Most guide books rate this as 5.9, but for Vedauwoo it feels much easier (say 5.8).

Fun route, felt pretty easy for a 5.9 at Vedauwoo (especially compared to Fantasia). I was a little bit intimidated though - it was my first chimney lead, and knowing it was a 5.9 at Vedauwoo made me a little nervous about giving it a go. I was definitely tired after thrutching my way up the squeeze chimney, but it sure felt good to send it.
