Description

Wonderfully subtle face climbing on marginal holds--you must have mastered this surface to hold-on. Simply "visionary."

This route climbs the face 8 feet right of the SY-classic "Vanishing Flakes." Climb past a mangled lead bolt without hanger and up to the second bolt of Flakes. Give your feet a break on a small ledge before stepping up and right on a blank face.

Finish on the upper half of Rockoco.

Mostly a top-rope or a solo.

Protection

I have not led the lower face (ie the crux) of this route. I can say from a distance that the only pro on the bottom 40 feet is 1 bolt (the second bolt of Vanishing Flakes).

Gear: 1-2 inches for the 5.5 crack above, which is shared with Rockoco & Flakes.

Two 1/2" wedge bolts with chains for a top-anchor (shared with Rockoco and Flakes).
