Description

Follow directions to the main rock & hike up the short, steep obvious trail. It is maybe 75' to the right of The Staircase. This route is very obvious - sorry I'm not more specific (look at attached picture). This is a good climb to do while waiting for folks to clear off The Staircase.

It is one pitch (80' or so) with a 2 bolt anchor / rap station. The start is a bit awkward, and then a combo of lieback, stemming, and face moves brings you to the top. There are not as many finger / hand jams as you'd think.

It is very fun and a bit thoughtful for the grade - I plugged way more gear than I had anticipated.

There is a harder sport climb on the face of this 'hollow flake' that can easily be TR'd from the anchors....

Protection

Small - medium gear? I've got a bad memory.

Per Paul Vervalin: larger (like #3 C4) pieces near the bottom section; medium (like #0.5 to #2 C4) in the middle section; and small (like #0.3 C4) and nuts in the upper section.
