Flakes of Wrath. My first time trying it, couldn'...
Pitch 1 is the crux, with strenuous lieback and hand jams in good rock. The 5.9 second pitch is runout. It finishes on top of the rock - walk off to the right. This route is in the shade after mid-morning

A nice variation is to do "Flakes of Quest," as you come up out of the crux of pitch one, traverse up and left into the business on Johnny Quest. Double rope technique is nice for this bit.

This is one of the most brutal climbs I know.

A nice climb, but the crux will definitely give problems to those with poor jamming skills. The finish suggested by Kris is a nice way to go. The original second pitch is kind of meandering and a little runout, but not as scary as the 5.9 R rating suggests.
