Starting up...

Description 

Get your wits together for this cool sandbag. Start on top of a block slightly downhill and to the right of Flappin' in the Breeze. Smear your way up a short, unprotected slab to gain the roof/flake system, traverse it about 80 feet to the right, then bust onto the face at a white streak using good holds. Cruise up the relatively unprotected face for ~50 feet to the rappel anchor.

Location 

On the far right side of the Flakeview area - it's hard to miss this 100 ft horizontal roof/flake system.

Protection 

Mostly smaller cams, but there are some important placements for big ones as well.

Best way to get to Sugaree. Makes a nice burly and heady link-up. Have your head on straight for both.
