Description guess it "Jugs" following the path of least resistance, working your way to the left and right of the rounded arete.


Left side arete of the "Celebrity Flake".


Standard rack, runners. Rap rings at the top.

Fun route; the climbing is easy, but the protection isn't obvious. This would be a good challenge for a neophyte leader. If you're setting a toprope, pay special attention to extending the anchor to avoid huge rope drag.

I give this 3/5 stars because it requires unique protection. Placements fade at the top so place a bomber piece and finish up the typical sunset topout with confidence.

Decent easy route, if it wasn't marred by the loss rock early on I'd have given it another star. Led it with a single tri-cam placement and 5 slings/threads, but I like slinging stuff.

As of 5/30/15 there is a softball-size hornets nest found towards the top of the route. The nest is located on route near the upper chicken head just below the top out. Be advised that the hornets will start swarming when agitated by the rope, climber, etc. which we found difficult to avoid. Would hate for anyone to get stuck in a bad situation.
