Description [Edit]

The left side of the obvious flake right of the Flying Circus. A heady route with limited pro- climb the flake to the top, clip a bolt, then climb straight up to the top.

Protection [Edit]

Gear (not much, a cam and a couple of nuts will do)

The bolt is missing its hanger. But if you're up for leading an R route anyway you might not care. Jun 27, 2011

A serious lead for sure. Fortunately it feels a bit easy for 5.9 until after you clip the upper bolt. Aug 11, 2012

I was toting both OW and the right small gear, and this felt solidly PG13. Barring that, though, I agree with the R rating. Mar 25, 2013

No rap rings on bolts at the top of the climb- we rapped on the blocky 5.7 route to the right. Flake is pretty cool feature but definitely a spooky lead and not sure I can recommend after following (my partner did not know about R/PG13 rating and has a better lead head :-) ). Aug 23, 2017

"Oh this looks like a good warm up!" I said.
"Look it has a bolt" I said.
"I can probably get some gear in behind the flake" I said.
Turns out you can't... Luckily the climbing down low is pretty easy, and you can escape right to the tree stump after the bolt instead of going straight up.

Cool flake though. Aug 23, 2017
