Clip a bolt and climb the overhang. Follow easier rock to the crux at the 3rd & 4th bolts where the rock steepens and the holds get smaller.


8 feet right of Bihedral Arete start.


Four bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Did I miss something in the guide info? What is above the anchors on this route? They still look shinny and pretty. Is it new? May 19, 2008

JellieBean (did you change your name?), Where's Ray ends at the same first anchor as Flags of Our Fathers. Then, Flags.. goes up 2 more pitches to a new anchor which is also for the Bihedral Arete. These routes were done Fall 2006. Above that anchor is the short and difficult Sands of Iwo Jima. May 19, 2008

I found this to be pretty tricky compared to the other 5.8s in the canyon. (I'm almost done with an arbitrary goal of ticking all of them.) The crux sequence is tough to decipher, because the holds are thin and hard to spot. Decent route once you figure it out, but not one I'd bring a non-climber or beginner up for an easy tick like some other routes of the grade. Also wasn't sure where to go at the start, but going right of the block below the bolt felt the most natural. May 25, 2018
