Description

Rick Flare is the flaring dihedral to crack that starts 25 feet off the deck. Originally a pure trad climb, but was later bolted due to the need for another good warm-up. As a trad climb, one had to solo to the start of the dihedral(9+), and then place gear in the flaring crack - fairly bold. For this reason it was rarely, if ever, climbed. Now it is well bolted, and will be one of the best and most popular routes at the crag. Excellent varied climbing, and the best warm-up in this area of the cliff.

Location

Same start as Egypt Air arete, angle right to the dihedral.

Protection

Bolts to anchor. For a trad lead bring medium to small cams.
