Description

Get you mojo on for this one. Way fun pumpy climbing out the thin flake is the focal point of the route but thought provoking moves on each end ice the cake.

Start up the left facing corner making sure to get protection in high enough before finding your way right to a rest before the flake. Move left placing good pro (#1 & .75) then onto the flake, yeah it's thin! Clip a bolt and stay moving until you can jam the horizontal at its end (#1 or a tight #2). Getting stood up into the horizontal crack is difficult a few more moves to the anchor are easy. Lower off.

Location

About 75 feet right, uphill from Lurking in the bushes below the big left arching flake.

Protection

Cams up to BD #1 or #2. Doubles in #1 are nice but there are other options too if you have only one I'd save it for the top. We didn't place nuts.

Great fun! Looks like it took a lot of cleaning so, nice work! Well protected and interesting the whole way. A great test of kneebar skills. Jun 21, 2016
