The Flake

Eliminates from Bob Murray (Bouldering Beyond Campbell.) 

1) A few feet left of the overhanging outside corner is an obvious flake at eye level. Go up and left. B1+ Variation: with both hands on the flake, lunge up and left to the good fingertip hold. Eliminate the good left foothold at the start. B2

(2) Start same as (1) but go up and right to a small horn. Continue up and right. B1+

(3) Similar to (2) but use a hold around the corner to reach the small horn with the left hand. B1


On the left most side of the boulder opposite the gulley starting on a big flake jug by the arete.

There is also a good left variation to this problem: start on the same flake and move up and left using small edges. Probably the same grade, maybe easier if you are tall.
