Just right of African Flake is this route. It is the leftmost of three short routes that share one of two anchors 40 feet up. Thin face moves characterize this route.

A fun, short route. Is it just me, or has this route gotten easier over the last 2 years (most routes are getting harder for me, save this one, as I have put on some weight...).

You're right, Josh, I had the same experience. One day I was leading and found a nice little foot hold at the crux I had never seen before (on several earlier ascents). I always thought this route felt .10a until that moment. Now it feels 5.9.

Liked this short climb a lot. It was a one move wonder, a 5.6 slab with a 10a boulder problem in the middle. although once you find the little nub at the crux to cancel the highstep, it does feel a lot easier.

According to a friendly local, someone has chipped holds on this route, or around this route. It used to be harder but now feels like .10a the whole way, according to him.

On my first try, getting past the first bolt was the hardest part. But after i figured it out, it wasn't so bad and the next move to the hole was pretty easy. Super fun route!!
