Onsight lead of The Flake (5.8) on May 7, 2016.

Access Restriction: Parking MORE INFO >>>


A good climb up an obvious and sharp flake that creates a dihedral. Straight forward climbing but the crux could easily result in a broken ankle if you fall on lead (foot jam, not ground fall...)


Northwest Bluff


Cams and hexes to #3

Big gear good to have here; watch out for hornets to the left.
