Description Suggest change

A steep, exposed, thrilling, and wonderful natural line up the best-looking face in Rock Canyon. When big-name climbers come to Rock Canyon, Flakes always impresses.

The line follows the right side of two large flakes about twenty feet to the left Main Crack.

A start directly below the right side of the first flake is how most people climb it these now, but in the days of shorter ropes climbers started almost directly below Main Crack and traversed left.

The climbing is exciting: easy moves interspersed with somewhat harder moves on mostly solid holds, and the occasional creaky jug. The gear is obvious and solid.

When the edge of the top flake peters out, bear right and up to an obvious crack and the chains.

Protection Suggest change

A single set of stoppers and cams, two bolts, and bolted anchors.
