Description

White Flake is a good way to get things going if visiting the Provo Wall. Containing a variety of climbing styles, this route warms up the body and mind while stimulating the senses.

Start climbing in the smooth left-facing dihedral. Using various techniques work your way to the crux which sits about half way up at a bulge. Pass this stricture and gain the routes token feature, a large, hollow, detached flake. Climb this to its end and finish out the remaining fifteen feet in a hand size crack.

A fun route with good gear and a comfortable amount of insecurity.

Location

White Flake is the most significant left-facing dihedral at the Southeast most end of the Breadloaves Provo Wall. Its easily recognized by its large and long detached white flake about 3/4s of the way up.

Protection

A single rack and slings. Build an anchor at the top in a horizontal overlap or use this to redirect the rope to Five Niner's chains. If building an anchor a #1, #2, and .5 or .75 BD will work nicely. Rap from chains.

haha a comfortable amount of insecurity indeed! I almost pooped my pants after I topped this one out. Apr 16, 2012

I sat and looked at the crux for a long time. It is really fun and committing movement once you do it. The flake up top is really fun! Apr 24, 2012

Started leading up this one and ended up finishing on the bolt line to the left. I topped the flake afterwards. The moves are all there, but the gear on the top portion didn't look as if it would hold much. May 21, 2018
