Description

This route has not been documented in any guidebooks, so I made up a name. I am guessing someone has probably climbed this route in the past. We started at the south end of the rock just north of a small Flatiron that leans against the main rock. Head staight up for about 20-25 feet. Pull a bulge to the right and piece together a right-angling, faint, flake system. This flake system goes through smooth red rock and is protected by RPs and small cams (none of which are very good). This exciting pitch ends in the large, left-facing dihedral. Do the last pitch of the East Face Center route and summit. A one rope rap gets you on the ground.

Protection

Pro to 2 inches.
