DescriptionThis route is a favorite of mine in all of Eastern Washington. Fun movement on great holds and features. Well bolted with clean falls. It shares anchors with Red Arete/Bono and it is easy to hang draws from there to project or top rope. This route is not in the LaBelle or Bland guides and from word of mouth I have heard it called Flower Power. If the first ascentionist or local lets me know a different/correct name id be happy to credit them and change the name if needed.
The crux is a long reach from a lock off near the top. There are three good hold options to do this, two of which are on the top of a flake that flexes when fully weighted. It dosen't seem like it will break soon, but if someone yards on it hard outwardly it will eventually. The moves are very possible without the flake, but please be gentle just in case. Perhaps it could be reinforced? Thats up to the first ascentionist and the locals to decide.
All that aside, this is an excellent route and you should climb it
LocationShares anchors with Red Arete/Bono. It is plumb line from the anchors on the face to the right of the arete.
