DescriptionSTART - Down and right of Middle Forist, at a slab below THE flake.
This is climb #14 in the pamphlet guide.
P1 - Scramble up the ladder (A-1 ?!) and head for the flake. (A good cam placement at the base, then only thin wired nuts along the "layback" flake. [finger tips at best). At a good horizontal, step right onto the slab. Then up (gear only) past one not-so-solid right-facing flake, and continue on (5.5 PG-13 ?) horizontal flakes and small ledges to the anchor shared with "Berliner". 100-110 ft 5.7 / 5.7+ PG-13.
Top Rope Variation [photo]- Climb the dark rock a few feet left of the layback flake, continue straight above the overlap and horizontal crack (i.e. don't step right). Merge with the regular line about 20-25 ft above the horizontal. 5.9 / 5.9+
