Description

Stand on the rock below the big flake and commit (if you're <5'6" or have a negative ape index) to the huge juggy slope; alternately, for those of shorter stature, you could place a nut and then pull on it. From there it's basically a vertical traverse on top of the big flake. Get a high foot or heel and mantle on top of the flake (into the little nook) then, as Robert Frost once did, make a choice (left to Think Skeletons or right to the Owl's Lookout):

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Location

Can't miss it.

Protection

Could be easily trad climbed. Otherwise TR anchor.
