DescriptionFlare Play is the next crack up the southwest face of Dos Equis Wall from Scare Way (5.10b). Reach it by tricky scrambling to an uncomfortable belay in some big boulders leaning against the wall.
There are two ways to climb this route, following either the left layback with a new bolt or right straight up thin crack where it splits. Both ways are 5.10c and challenging leads. In my opinion its very worthwhile to lead both.
For the left head up the thin crack and hand traverse left, make an insecure move up to a bolt and then lieback a rounded rail, a green or red Camelot might go in the flare above the bolt.
For the right crack instead of the hand traverse left, continue the steep thin crack with difficult to place but good pro. When it looks really really hard to continue, go right to a left slanting hand crack above.
Both ways finish on a nice 5.9 fist crack.
Pretty typical fun exciting Josh climbing.
