A bouldery, overhung start leads to steep edges on a clean headwall. Climb to the left of a thin seam that opens up and becomes flared at the anchor.


To the right of The Boot. The first free climb at the Boot Flake Area that is reached when approaching from upstream.


While this route might go on makes more sense to toprope it. Be safe when setting up a toprope on this climb, as the bolts are in a slick location.
