Description Suggest change

Somewhat reminiscent of Wheat Thin in Yosemite, this route liebacks and jams a thin flake that appears to be merely resting on a ledge due to gravity only. The OW crack formed by the flake was deemed too precarious for cams and has five bolts drilled into the main wall in addition to the chain anchors. Don't pull too hard while liebacking the flake!

Location Suggest change

Look on the left wall upon entering the first narrows. Update 2020: lots of vegetation has grown since the FA. Back then the flake was obvious from the path, but now it is hard to see. I'll post a photo from the only remaining vantage point on the trail.

Protection Suggest change

A medium nut at the start (optional) and quickdraws
