Description [Suggest Change]
Fly or Die lies on the right side of the Main Area, just left of the easier climb Beginners Cracks. Start beneath the obvious downward and left facing flake. A long reach up and over left to the bottom of the crescent flake is the crux of the climb. Thin face climbing leads from the crescent up to knobs to the top. There are several fun variations for the upper section. From the crescent flake, step left onto the blank face. Move left another move or so to the small knobs and climb straight up (5.10+). Instead of going up to the small knobs, continue left further on even blanker terrain and then straight up (5.11). Another variation is from the crescent, traverse to the arête's face on the right and up (5.10). Using the arête's edge makes this trivial. This is a fun climb as the beginning is steep and strenuous and the remainder is delicate face climbing.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Fly or Die cannot be protected after the first 8' so toproping makes sense. There are two bolts for anchors on the top.
