This is a beautiful flake that is clinging on the hidden west side of the Prowe formation. Climbing this takes one up a steep bulging lieback until feet in the crack/flake can come about. Two options for the finish are as follows: continue straight up through a short dihedral (most commonly done) or, where the flake ends/dihedral starts, take a rail out to the left. Here two decent hand holds set one up for a dyno slap to the top, or a tougher yet static move. A mantel to finish this 5.11 variation. Either way, highly recommended
