This route climbs a giant flake that is separated by a wide crack from a left-facing dihedral. Jacob led pitch one, which climbs a crack system that gradually steepens and widens until it ends after about 140 feet and difficult chimneying (5.8++). He built a gear anchor.

Pitch two is an intimidating puzzle. It begins by stepping down and traversing right to a horizontal seam. I reached farther down and right to shove in a #4, which I extended with a long sling. Pulling on a shallow offset Mastercam allowed a long reach to a #1 placement in a horizontal. Pulling on it reached a short, vertical handcrack. I pulled on gear, and I guess that freeing this section would be reachy, committing 5.10. From its top, traverse right, passing beneath a big overhang and following a horizontal crack around the corner, into a chimney/gully.

After untying, we scrambled to the top of the big chimney. We scrambled in zigzags, eastward and down to Gem Lake, which is really a picturesque pond.


Start about 50 feet left of Squeezeasy.


Doubles through #4, one 5, and one 6.
