Description 

This route is a slight squeeze job between Flakes Away 5.12a and Bucket Brigade 5.6 and a good moderate alternative to the both of those routes. As the name states use the blunt corner to the right of Bucket Brigade and to the left of Flakes Away. In my humble opinion the route's crux is near the bottom as a lack of feet make reaching a lovely large ledge quite difficult. The rest of the route climbs on decent ledges with oh so tempting buckets calling your name from Bucket Brigade.


Protection 

Standard Rack. Decent pro could possibly be acquired using the within reach rule off Bucket Brigade.

I think there is another squeeze job between this and Flakes called Double Hernia?

You are correct. Do you want to add it?

Nah, Double Hernia is more of an eliminate to Nice Corner. For the record DH reads "Climb thin crack to ledge at 20ft. Continue right of corner with out using corner."
