Coming to the namesake White Flake.
White Flake is a good way to get things going if visiting the Provo Wall. Containing a variety of climbing styles, this route warms up the body and mind while stimulating the senses.
Start climbing in the smooth left-facing dihedral. Using various techniques work your way to the crux which sits about half way up at a bulge. Pass this stricture and gain the routes token feature, a large, hollow, detached flake. Climb this to its end and finish out the remaining fifteen feet in a hand size crack.
A fun route with good gear and a comfortable amount of insecurity.
White Flake is the most significant left-facing dihedral at the Southeast most end of the Breadloaves Provo Wall. Its easily recognized by its large and long detached white flake about 3/4s of the way up.
A single rack and slings. Build an anchor at the top in a horizontal overlap or use this to redirect the rope to Five Niner's chains. If building an anchor a #1, #2, and .5 or .75 BD will work nicely. Rap from chains.

I sat and looked at the crux for a long time. It is really fun and committing movement once you do it. The flake up top is really fun!
