Description

A bouldery start with very little protection makes the start of this climb interesting. Boulder up past thin holds to a good horizontal. Put in a bomber piece and breathe. Continue up and right past horizontals and crimpy flakes to the base of a crack. Jam and layback this pumpy crack to the top.

Location

On the back side of Celebrity Flake (Train Time, etc), up hill off the trail.

Protection

Rap rings. Trad gear.

Very fun and easy to TR from the other side. Back when I was first figuring out how to climb trad this inspired me to want to do steeper gear routes. (though I moved before I felt like I could lead it...) Great climbing. Aug 26, 2007

This is an exciting climb, pumpy but fun. At this point, it's hard to picture myself leading it, but flashing it on toprope was plenty satisfying. Don't pass this up if you've led one of the easier lines on the other side of the Celebrity Flake! Aug 13, 2008

I took the photos (BSR01 to 19) after a nice day of climbing here, back in 2005. I just got 'em "un-corrupted" and thus post 'em now. Feb 25, 2017
