Out along Vedauwoo road, about a 1/4 mile off the road to the southwest is a big rock complex with lots of boulders to it. There is a tunnel running directly underneath it with a crack that starts at 8", tapers down to 2-3" and turns a lip on the otherside. Bring tape and choose a windless day. This route is something resembling the Crack House of Moab. Up to 25 feet of overhanging hands, no more than 3 feet off the ground. Most people only do the last 10-15 feet of the roof, as this is the enjoyable section. Finishes on sharp fingerlocks. You can climb all the way up to the top, but there's no easy way off. It turns into an uneventful V0- highball... that you have to downclimb to get off

5 out of 5 stars OMG YES! Fav crack climb EVER!

Man I took like 5 trips out to Nats 3 star and got shut down so many times that I completely memorised every move. The upside down "BAT HANG" and heel hook on crystal with shoulder wedged at same time for the top out were my favorite moves! Goddam i want to climb it again!

Very recommended... Crux comes, like always, trying to pull the roof. My favorite part is the hands free rest a few moves before the crux. Took me a good 30 tries or so to stick the fingerlocks on sharp crystals at the end of the crux. Blew it more than a few times here.... have the scars to show for it.
