Flaky Pirates

V1-2, Boulder, 12 ft (4 m),  Avg: 2 from 2 votes
FA: unknown
Rhode Island > Narragansett > Black Point

Description

Pull onto the slab, between bottle of rum and warm up arete, using small crystals for hands and feet. Stand up and work your way straight up the slab to slopey, but not difficult top-out.  Using holds from Bottle of Rum and the Warm-up Arete make it closer to V1; if you eliminate the good holds on the left and the jugs arete on the right the climb end out a bit closer to V2 and more fun in my opinion.  The eliminate variation is more focused on balance and uses a really fun set of sloping holds along the top of the right arete.

Location

This climb starts on the slabby face in between the bulge that is the finish of Bottle of Rum and the right arete of the front side of the boulder.
