Description Suggest change

Short and stout! Under-cling the giant jagged flake that gives the route it's name. Bring your magnifying glass to find the footholds. When you are done with the traverse you meet the crux moving up a shallow corner and making a mind and body bending move to the holds just beyond the anchor. 

The FA proposed 5.12a, I found it to feel a good bit harder. Could it be body size? Conditions? strengths/weaknesses in the style? I don't know but I would love some other opinions if you get on it. I found it to be mid-level 5.12.  

Fun and challenging.

Location Suggest change

As you walk up the hill from the B-b-buttress area look for the very obvious huge jagged under-cling flake with no discernible foot holds on the wall below. It is perhaps 1/4 of the way up the hill. 

Protection Suggest change

4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor
