Nice route to the right of Petit Crapon. Starts as a hand crack, widens to an offwidth pod. Follow the most obvious route to the top from there.

4 out of 5 stars Racking on the correct side makes this much easier

If you rack on the wrong side for this pitch, it will punish you for it. The problem is that its not clear which side is the wrong side. Camalots .5-3 were perfect for protecting this climb.

Thought this would be my first lead, but the book rated it a 5.6, obviously not a 5.6 (if you compare it to Kim).

Probably my favorite 5.7 at Vedauwoo, very fun little route. After climbing this we top roped Fantasia (5.9, which I actually did really well on) and Piece of Dirt (11a face climb, hung a few times but enjoyed it). The next day we cruised up Edward's Crack and the first pitch of Capt Nemo (5.8).
