BETA PHOTO: Eight Ball Corner Pocket aka: Flake Route


Eight Ball Corner Pocket is THE warm-up route for this wall. This is also the project that the intermediate climbers of High Cliff dream of.

The route starts under the massive white flake in the middle of the wall. Work straight up to this flake, and shake out for the crux of the route.
Traverse right under the overhang and work straight up the side of the overhang. Once you conquer this, commit to the ending section of slopers.


Eight Ball Corner Pocket is located in the middle of the wall underneath the large white flake.

Instead of traversing around the overhang, try the direct. Not sure what should be considered on or off, but it's of comparable difficulty (a couple V0,V1 moves) and a bit of fun.
