Cornelius- 40’-5.5***  Sucess!

Definitely the more aesthetic of the two (Easy Jam). Heavily featured finger seam, left to right on the right side of the corner. Straightens out at the end to a fixed rap. Dow

Easy Jam- 40’-5.4*  Sucess!

I soloed up Cornelius and down climbed Easy Jam for two quick ones. Both way easy by Vedauwoo standards. Easy Jam is more hands/wider, and in the right facing corner just right of Hair Lip. Dow

Hair Lip- 80’-5.9+***  Sucess!

Guide has it as two pitches, but easily done as one. Usually old 5.9+ routes are more challenging than most 5.10-‘s and Hair Lip is no exception. Great route. Cruxy start/pro off the deck. Stemming and ring locks/fingers get you past it. Then into the double crack proper, steep and wide up to a fixed anchor. Up another crack to the right and traverse via a horizontal to the right that turns into a full body crawl if you want. Then solid hands until an obvious awkward mantle. Up a closed red corner with a small wire or micro cam via a power leg move. Belay on top with medium to large gear. Rap down the back side for a short rap and then rap Easy Jam or Cornelius. Single rack to C4#4, double from C4#.5 to #2. Wires and/or micro cams. Dow

Great Summit!  Sucess!

Climbed via Mother (classic Voo 5.7+ offwidth testpiece) to Parabolic Slab. I have a feeling this wasn't my last visit. Love Vedauwoo.

Variety of routes  Sucess!

Date approx. Climbed routes all over this rock, and then summited at the end of the day via the Parabolic Slab. Fun rap off the top if I recall.
