Candice on top of Butterfly Flake. A fun 7.

Be it for beginning leaders, or an easy warm-up for the more experienced, this is a neat little route. Follow generous holds and the beautiful right-facing flake to the top.


The right-most route of Tattoo Wall proper. Just LEFT of the ramping route, Plumber's Crack (5.6). Look for the obvious flake midway up.


3 Bolts.

Butterfly Flake, 5.7. <br />A nice route for new leaders. <br /> <br />Clay on the sharp end for only the second time.  <br />

It's a shame this route is so short. But it's good for what you get.

Nice laybacking on the juggy flake all the way up to the anchors. This was one of my first leads and I loved it.

Interesting Route, working the top of the flake is a little weird but fun!
