Description 

This climb gets a 10a rating because of the first two moves to get into the crack. Once you've established yourself in the flake, the climbing is 5.8 to the top. The flake ends about 6 feet from the top; you can use a 2-bolt anchor 6 feet to the right to rap back down.

A #3 and #4 Friend.
