Description [Suggest Change]
Locate a curving right-facing flake system right of Betty and climb more or less straight up staying to the left of the flake system; midway up is a shallow 3/8" hole with a rusted, broken-off drill bit at the back. Continue up and traverse slightly right along a thin horizontal to pull a smooth face slightly right of center (it's possible to continue further right to make it easier).
- The guidebook description and topo say to follow the flake directly, but done this way it's more like solid 5.11 and the moves aren't as enjoyable.
