DescriptionOne of the best 5.8s in the notch. If it's your first time at this crag, you'll probably look up at this route and say "5.8?? AND good pro??" This route is rather steep and exposed, but with good protection that you cannot always see from below. Take special care with route finding, as there is some loose rock.
From the anchor, climb up and left to the first of two bolts on the face. After the second bolt, climb fairly directly up the face (some route finding necessary) past a pin, and the final two bolts towards the top of the climb.
There is no real "crux," just consistent 5.8 face climbing. The route ends at the top of The Flatiron, on a huge ledge with a two bolt anchor and commanding views of the notch.
