Description

The Flash Gordon Area is a collection of problems in a side canyon on the right side of the trail between the Long Valley and Trailside Areas. Problems of all sorts and grades are found here with short one-move-wonders, long traverses, scary highballs, slabs and roofs.

Some of the better problems here include the Tree Problem (V0-), Serpentine Ridge (V0- R), Another Tree Problem (V0+), Sea of Tranquility (V1 R), Buck Rogers (V2), Flash Gordon (V3), Rufus (V5), The Rhino (V7 R), The Elf (V8) and the Mr. Smiley Traverse (V10).
Remember to fill out a wilderness permit, even if climbing for the day! Details

Getting There

Hike past the Ranger Station and the trail junction bearing right and continue for about 100 meters to a spot where the trail crosses a slab of granite. From here veer right at about 2 o'clock and follow a trail which leads to the mouth of the canyon - the Warm-up Boulder will be quickly visible on the right side of the trail.
