two proud, parallel lines mark the formation's center. Mud in your Eye is on the right. Begin with strange moves to a hand-sized triangular slot which proves to be the Worst Handjam at Vedauwoo. Try it four different ways. It's still lousy. Reach up left for the locker fingers, pull over a wild bulge, and you'll find yourself on a nice plump dance-floor ledge. The crack above is only 5.9. And flared, and hard to protect, and ... well, consider the name of this climb. The ledge below changes from friendly rest place to ankle-snapping menace. Maybe you can get gear in.... Walk off right & down a ramp, or saunter left & ab off another route's anchors. Pretty easy climb for its grade.

Feels easier than lichen lung. Probably due to my bad technique

probably easier than 11b. Lichen lung feels quite a bit harder and it's only rated 10d (sandbag!)
