Description

Start in the first place that seems reasonable to the right of Flying A. Boulder up on good ledges to reach on obvious big flake and traverse right and move up in a hands section. Above is a flaring slot; exiting it is the crux. The thin crack above is easier climbing with more footholds, but less obvious gear placements for 15' or so. At the top, the crack widens to hand size, and good gear can be placed again.
It's a worthwhile easier climb (for the Playground). Tough for Playground 5.9, but easy for Playground 5.10

Location

This climb is about 20' to the right of Texas, or about 10' right of Flying A. Identify a flaring slot about 2/3 of the way up.

Protection
