About 100 feet right of Captain Nemo is a dihedral/alcove thing. There is an amazing looking hands-to-offwidth climb. It goes (I've heard) at 5.11 or so. This is not that route. Right in the corner, a hand crack goes up, then right, around a block to the belay at the base of the off-width. Overprotect the traverse around that block (otherwise it actually feels harder to second than to lead that pitch) (P1). Go up the offwidth. Easier said than done right? Use the ol' "sliding top rope" with that #4 camalot you lugged up there, get on the tope of the giant block, shout out your victory at Walt's Wall, then turn around and go up a flaring chimney to the top, and the belay (P2). Walk off to your right.

Matt really enjoyed the first pitch, the 2nd pitch errr....., Poor Matt, when will you learn to love the offwidth?

Woohoo! booty #3.5 Camalot. Spent 2.5 hours digging it out from 15 feet inside the offwidth. Kind of a strange climb. Lots of traversing back and forth. The 5.6 offwidth section will make you scared to see what a 5.9 OW looks like.

My first introduction to crack's at Vedauwoo. Bring tape. Lots of tape. Tape your ankles. Don't think that just because its 5.6, you can in fact climb it. A good intro to wider off-widths.
