Classic. Two pitch with 50m, can be done in one with 60m rope. Good lead for beginners. As two pitches, belay at obvious ledge at half height. At the top, belay just above the crux wide spot and NOT from the trees well above the vaguely steep stuff. Often climbed solo in the moonlight by locals (and excellent as such). Variants go left and right at the top of Tourist Trap (5.4), a ramp that intersects Ed's at a sloping ledge 15 feet from the crux. Unlike the rest of Vedauwoo, this route is so polished that you do not need tape. Crowded during the summer, and some sunny days in fall and spring.

Wasnt what It was cracked up to be. Basically a 2 move wonder.
I was excited to try this route when I first saw it. As we got closer, I realized that it is lower angled than I thought. The first short part was a fun, layback/OW section. After that, I basically walked up the crack and set only 2 pieces. Then the top part that was actually vertical was fun, but only a couple moves to the top. I do have to say that I think that this route may have the only jug in vedauwoo. I was a bit disappointed. Im not sure how this was considered a 5.7 when Mother #1 kicked my ass the day before.
