Description

A unique route that utilized a large downward-then-rightward-facing flake (sorry, it's not really a crack).

Start on decent holds and up to a hueco, then begins your adventure up into the flake (crack), in which squirrels may or may not live. Go right and up the flake to a jug, then a series of wonderful crimps and ledges and pockets to the anchors. Similar to most Reimers routes, the top section gets real blank, except for the few holds that lead to the top.

This route does not see much traffic, perhaps due to it starting up on a ledge with bad fall potential: a stick clip would help.

Location

The first route you'll encounter on Insect Wall, left of Deflower Power by 20-30 feet. There is a tall (10 foot) detached boulder in between the trail and the wall that you can scramble up to get to the belay station, which is kinda of sketchy.

Protection

4 bolts + chain anchors
