Looking up Valiant Flail to No Avail (5.11b), Rive...
Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


Easy face climbing leads to the second bolt and a small stance where the difficulties begin - the crux is characterized by delicate friction on smooth rock with minimal handholds; once the third bolt is reached it becomes much easier.

A delicate and tricky crux sequence played out on superb rock make this a must do for those who enjoy slab climbing.


Located on the right end of the Agony Arch Area between Quake and Shake Flakes and Fear the Smear.


5 bolts, chain anchors
