Just around the corner to the right of the Climb and Punishment alcove is this striking overhanging hand to finger crack. Suggested Rack(YMMV): Camalots 1 #4 2-3 #3-0.5 and 1-2 in the tcu/alien range. Fewer small cams if placing more nuts through the crux. Save a #2 Camalot and some other medium sized gear for above the finger (crux) section. Rack up and power through 40+ feet of sweet hands. Soon the jams thin until you reach the technical and stiff sequence through thin and sometimes rattly fingers. You will be raining small bits of rock on your belayer as stem your feet out to the friable face - also pull lightly on the hollow flakes just before the anchor. The anhcor is an old-school affair of old bolts and gear held together by a nest of webbing. A rest before the crux section has dissappeared when a flake took flight recently. Possibly a letter harder (12b?) now - then again everything at Vedauwoo is a bit sandbagged isn't it?
