walking the flake

Description 

More of a mental crux than a technical one. The moves all of the way seemed pretty straight forward. The top to the anchors was tough for me to reach and pull to the ledge so I hand traversed the ledge to the anchors. My taller partner was able to reach above the ledge and pull up sooner. This seemed like the crux move to me


Location 

Starts at the base of Rock Wars and does a rising traverse to the anchors of Autumn


Protection 

Pro is easy straight forward as long as you are able to trust the flake. The flake is thin and convincing yourself that it isn't going to break off in a fall seems like what made the route 5.9

THis route was absolutely pure fun, in a puckered sort of way. Really cool climb.

Best (and most impossible) flake I have ever pulled on.
