Description Suggest change

A unique and memorable addition to the Lost Elden obscurities. Originally found and possibly top roped on by Flag Old School (E.M.?). Dubbed the "Mini-Grand Illusion" of Flagstaff.

Start below on a low angle slab. Climb up unprotected but easy terrain to the base of the looming dihedral. With contention, stem and push your way through the short but physical stem-flare and "mantle" looking directly down at your belayer.

A kindergarteners lesson from "Book of Hate"

Location Suggest change

Directly to the left of Wide Eyed. Look for the obvious steep flaring stem box.
