The Flare and Fear of Ejection


Main cliff , far left side. A 5.7 slab ( no pro) up to a short finger crack- step right into the ominous leaning flare, if you survive a nice belay is awaiting you. George CRUISED this and I fell 3 times seconding and nearly puked at the top. Still 10+. The direct start in a short groove to the right of the finger crack 11B stemming which I flashed .


One of the only obvious routes on the far left


small cams and some biggies-Ithink one bong is fixed. Tree and fixed nut rap
