Description

Get your wits together for this cool sandbag. Start on top of a block slightly downhill and to the right of Flappin' in the Breeze. Smear your way up a short, unprotected slab to gain the roof/flake system, traverse it about 80 feet to the right, then bust onto the face at a white streak using good holds. Cruise up the relatively unprotected face for ~50 feet to the rappel anchor.

Location

On the far right side of the Flakeview area - it's hard to miss this 100 ft horizontal roof/flake system.

Protection

Mostly smaller cams, but there are some important placements for big ones as well.

Heads up on the anchor. I was out there yesterday 2/5/2017 and retrieved a melted cord from the rap tree. (recent fire damage) The tree was green and healthy, however it did appear to have slight burn damage showing on some of its protruding roots. I advise building a gear anchor down left of the tree in the crack. It may also be advisable to install rap bolts in the future. Feb 7, 2017

Best way to get to Sugaree. Makes a nice burly and heady link-up. Have your head on straight for both. Jan 5, 2016
