Description

Begin as for Flake Out. Instead of climbing the overhanging left-leaning corner, move up right and climb the face right of the arete.

As with many obscure Kodas routes, this needs cleaning.

The lower half feels pretty contrived, clinging to a slab just above a much easier and uglier chimney/gully, but the upper headwall achieves good position. Aug 6, 2006
I concur with the above comment. Dirty, and the bottom is sort of silly, climbing next to a gully. Also, though the above headwall is fun, there's an unpleasantly hollow large flake at the beginning. Aug 5, 2007

I thought this route was pretty fun. There's a cool step-across about halfway up and then a crimpy headwall finish with a good position. Feb 28, 2009
