South America Flake 5.11

Description 

Hard to miss and quite attractive. The crux is encountered above the flake and is bolt protected.

Climb the flake to a bivy ledge then head up a blocky face with rounded holds past two bolts to the anchor.

Location 

Hiking up the Dicky trail break right and down into the woods just before reaching the ledges. This flake is the first route that can be seen, very hard to miss!

Protection 

Two Bolts and some Cams. Bolt anchor that cannot be seen.
