Description

Just left of Pretzel Logic you can look up and see a large jutting flake. Easy climbing up to the left side of the flake. Follow the large right slanting crack in the flake to its end then straight up. Tree belay. Easy hike off.

Protection

Big cam + normal rack

I am one of few people who did this route but during the fire this year a large tree fell across it and knocked most of it down so i think RIP to the flake... Nov 16, 2008

Lee, you're the only other person I've ever heard of to do this route.
Easy come. easy go. Maybe we could glue it back on.

We're working on it, Tom. We have a derrick set up and have been lifting the pieces up and into place. Unfortunately, we ran out of glue..looking at some deals to buy by the barrel...hoping to add fifteen feet by adding a pillar at the top. Nov 18, 2008

I saw the fallen tree and it missed the Flake. The route was untouched. Nov 18, 2009
There is a harder, more poorly protected, variation of this route that goes into the second flake slot just above Pretzel Logic and awkwardly chimneys up it plugging gear into a horizontal crack before sliding out towards the last move on Pretzel Logic. I'm not sure if that merits an independent line, but the variation probably goes at 5.9 pg-13. I can't be the only idiot to have done that. Oct 12, 2015

Eli, I think Bradley J White did it. I've never led it, It looks a little sketchy. Oct 15, 2015
