Up right a little to grab the flake, then thoughtful moves to a finish going over the right side of the Cap rock.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


Left of below flake which is about fifteen right of the arete, and just left of detached boulder about fifteen feet high with plane face aimed down the slope.
