Description

Family Flake shares the first pitch and a part of its second pitch with Muscle Fat. Where Muscle Fat departs from the flake and turns right to follow a diagonal crack, Family Flake continues climbing up the flake and then traverses left to the anchors of Metal Pecker.

Pitch 1 (5.3 PG). Scramble up low 5th class slabs to a gear belay (small cams) beneath the bottom of the right side crack below the Small Arch.

Pitch 2 (5.6). The flake is 5.5 but save one 2” cam to place as the last pro before the 5.6 traverse to the belay station (shared with Metal Pecker). The traverse is on an easy slab with knobs but it takes no pro.

Descend: 240 feet. Two 60 meter ropes required plus short third class walk-off.

Location

The route starts 200 feet left of the toe of the Buttress.
