Description Suggest change

Keep Off Flake was a decades old problem that first received attention in the late 70s and stood idle for many years. It climbs an attractive right arching flake and corner system.

P1-Wander in from the right on 4th class/easy 5th class terrain to the top of a block. Climb the face past a bolt to a comfortable ledge; gear belay. 5.10- PG

P2-Climb the right facing flake to a stance on an edge. Undercling right, then up the corner to a stance. Continue up the corner, then undercling right with increasing challenges to a difficult stance below the final corner. Climb the corner (RPs, 2nd to last bolt on In Vivo) to the top and a fixed anchor. Rappel with double ropes. 5.12 PG

Location Suggest change

Approximately 150 yards right of the Paralysis Ampitheatre

Protection Suggest change

3/8" to 2.5" cams and RPs; 4" cam useful

Fixed protection is modern SS hardware

Many slings or double ropes to manage the traversing nature of the route.
