Description [Edit]

Great climbing with varied moves.

Go up the left side of the pancake-shaped flake to its top. Step left and go up a slab to its top. Undercling 6' right, then up a steep wall to a ledge. Move left on the ledge and climb a shallow right-facing corner to its top. Step right and climb jugs in black rock to a fixed anchor. 90'

Location [Edit]

Walk uphill and left along the base of the cliff for 15 minutes to an open area (the bombardment zone from winter ice) with a large 15'-tall pancake-shaped flake leaning against the wall. Begin on the left side of the pancake-shaped flake.

Protection [Edit]

Ten quickdraws.

Sick route, starts off delicate and then dances nicely up the face on positive holds. Worth the hike. Incredibly well protected. May 2, 2015

Nice varied route on super clean stone. Oct 1, 2016

Excellent route. If only it continued to the top! You can remedy that minor detraction by taking the Scary Potter Traverse, which provides the challenging opening moves of this route with access to the upper section. I didn't sample that particular option, but noticed its finish as we did Positive Latitude. Looks scary indeed. May 14, 2018
