Looking down to the belay on top of P1 of Iron Cross. 1985  
Stretching down to the belayer is that ultra-thin flake one must hand traverse where Quiet Desperation diverges from The Iron Cross. Because of the expanding nature of the flake, there really is no protection, and although the flake is easy, one must be extremely careful when standing on its top to clip that lone bolt. I wonder if anyone has ever pitched while making that not-so-easy stand up move... Jun 21, 2015
