Flashflood is one of the better warm ups on the Left Wall, and features hands through fingers jamming with excellent face relief. That, and the pitch is pretty solid, and good gear can be found throughout this all natural gear route.


To the right of Thick and Thin. Also shares an anchor with T and T.


double tcu's, single set the rest.

Flashfood is probably the best warm up on the Left Wall... Look for a small tree(bush) growing out of the dihedral at about 30'. This little tree marks the line well. Look for a semi committing start up a thin, right waving little crack. Good face holds, and good gear if you find it. Thin hands at the top!

Having a .5 Camalot at the top is nice.
