Scarlet Begonias.

Description 

This is the fairly short flake right of Fails of Power. It climbs through a pod and into a handcrack for 30 feet; this section goes up a right facing dihedral. From there, you'll have to undercling right out of the small roof, and then up another 15 feet to the chains.

The lower section in the dihedral has some face holds for feet. Take advantage of them.


Location 

First crack/flake right of Fails of Power. It begins up a right-facing dihedral.


Protection 

Camalots: (1)#.5, (2)#.75 and #1, (1)#2 for the pod down low; (1) yellow and orange Metolius; Handful of draws and runners

A 3 or 4 camalot protects the low pod far better than a 2. Also 2 friends fit the roof just right.
