Description

Left of Sin Tisa and Gambit.
Great slab climbing leads to an upper corner/alcove with some strenuous moves (slightly overhung if I recall.) Might be R due to the fall potential onto a slab but I recall the gear being pretty decent.

Protection

standard rack, small/medium wires, and/or offsets.

A deceptively cool pitch with engaging moves up high. Quite a bit of gear at the crux, though some of it is small. A little heads up, but not R rated compared to other R's at the Overlook. If you are working your way through the .10s here, don't pass this one by. Nov 22, 2014

Cool, good to see you got on it.
This was actually one of my favorite FAs out there.
The clean slab you go up is cool.

All the routes from here over to CrackNUp are really quite good.
Some better than others but none are duds, at least as I recall, each one has at least some cruxy bit up high that is good for a rush.

It is deceptive. All these routes are. They look short but have good value.

I really miss having a crag like this in my back yard for short afternoon jaunts. Coupled with Elden (and all the new stuff up there), Flag has some really excellent afternoon cragging in a living city. Yeah, the place is fractured and broken up compared to the stellar stuff around but for a 20-30 min drive.... Jan 15, 2015
