The view from the flake top out on the last pitch of Le Gourmet.  I've climbed it numerous times and still enjoy it.  It's a great finish for a 5.4.  Mike following the first pitch of Ecstasy Jr.  A pretty fun bottom to top "moderate" adventure route is Ecstasy Jr. to Le Gourmet (with Front C) and then a scramble to the top.  You could spice it up with Critter Crack at the top.  Mike getting a solid lead on Le Gourmet.  Don't let the pic fool you...there are plenty of holds but even at 5.4 Le Gourmet will test a new leader.  Especially if you throw Front C in there!  Here's a pic of the loose rock I mentioned in the post.  It's below my feet in the shadow.  You can see the separation from the main flake.  It felt like it would come out but maybe it's locked in.  I wasn't going to test it since it would endanger numerous routes below.  It's about 20ft from the top out of the final pitch.  There's no need to use it, there are gobs of holds.  From below though, you can't tell that it's suspect.  In a better location it would probably be worth attempting a few routes.  There is a little more rock to the left of this image as well.
