This is a short but fun route located on the far left side of Red Wall. Look for a large gully that separates Picnic Lunch Wall from Red Wall. Just right of this gully, there's a ledge system 15-20 feet above ground (accessible near its left side via 4th class "chimney") that runs along the base of the Red Wall. Bill's Flake follows a circular, 40-foot flake attached to main wall atop the ledge system.

Scramble up to the ledge system (class 4). Move up a short, left facing dihedral below the flake. Traverse left on perfect rock via hand jams and underclings (10-). Move up and follow left side of flake up and right to bolted anchor.


Cams from #.75 to #3 Camalot. Optional #3.5 Camalot.

this is a cool little pitch. if it was a 100ft, it would be four stars.

Very good quality rock, moves and protection. It's just a bit short. Seldom climbed, but well worth it. May 2, 2011

Anyone know what the bolted line left of this that goes over the little roof is called? Felt like 11+ May 12, 2018
