Follow the left leaning crack on the west side of the pillar.

Standard rack.

Use care when leading. I have herd that the flake moves/flexes and if you fall, it may rip out your pro. Feb 9, 2009

I can verify Frank's comment. I was leading Strawberry Jam yesterday, stuck a blue #3 Camalot into the wide spot under the flake and it looked and felt like a perfect placement. I climbed past it, fell, and the cam popped. No problem. I had more gear in the main crack below but won't place under that flake again. Nov 16, 2009
I led the Jam this past Saturday, and the mindset I had was to place pro either below or above the pod/flake area. There are plenty of solid placements above and below. And the flake provides great hands for placing.

Gorgeous route! Aug 2, 2010

Awesome route! I wasn't ready for the pump I felt and took my first lead fall just bellow the flake. Fell on a #2C4 and it safe and clean! I finished the beautiful climb and will be itching to go back for the red point. As of 10/30/10 (when we climbed it) the bolts had been cut off at the top. We slung a horn with webbing and backed up by a well placed stopper to rappel off the back side. Nov 5, 2010

There was indeed a chopped bolt just at the top of the climb where the crack bends left. Maybe the bolts I was supposed to use were at the very top if we chose to climb the 5.10 variation? Oct 10, 2011
