Belly Flop. Andy Hansen and I summer 2011. Backpac...


The route has exposure and protects well.

Description from Sven's guide: " Northeast ledges and overhang. Climb northeast side of Turk's Head to ledge beneath wide overhang. Reach up in central notch and mantle onto ledge above overhang. Walk around south side for easiest way to top."

"Variation - 5.6- Surmount overhang by crawling onto shelf at north end. No one has ever looked good doing this."


Just to the right of Turk's Head.


Standard Rack. Hand size pieces.
