Description

Climb easily up the wide crack forming the left side of the detached flake until standing on the sharp pointy tip. Protect the next moves well to avoid impalement on the sharp flake if you muff the crux!

Climb the finger crack above the sharktooth, cruxy at first then widening and easing off with some footholds out on the face to the right and a small flake roof. End on a ledge with a pair of rap hangers.

Location

Follow the trail to the base of the crag and head east (right) along the base of the wall for 5 minutes or so to an obvious detached sharp-tipped flake sitting against the cliff.

Protection

Finger to hand size pro with 1 or 2 larger pieces for the flake.

The most common start these days is up the right hand side of the flake via some thin underclinging (originally cleaned climbed by M-A Leclerc) and then stepping across to the shark tooth at the tree. Nov 10, 2010

THE FLAKE FELL OFF!

A chunk cracked off in spring 2017. The windstorm in October 2016 must have flexed the tree enough to pop off the remaining flake. Both flake and tree are now lying on the ground at the base. Shaun Neufeld and Max de Jong re-established the climb up the scar left by the flake. Definitely 10+ climbing now. A small blue cam in a wide pocket on the right of the corner provides protection through the crux moves now. Please don't add a bolt here. Nov 1, 2017

No need for any gear larger than a .5 C4 anymore. A Yellow C3 fits nicely in the pocket for a first piece and you may be able to get a couple RP's or micro cams in. There are lots of face holds that keep it around 10a now that the flake is gone.. I think it's even better than before! Feb 13, 2018
