Climb the blocky face to a right facing flake system. Climb it up to the tree island. Rap down or continue up easy face to the top and hike down to the right.


Located between Oh! Mr. Friction and Orangutan Flake at right side of cliff. Look for a right facing flake 20 feet right of Mr. Friction.

Ryan and I did this route. I barely remember it. We couldn't think of a name for it. I suggested "Adultery" because it was cheap and easy. Scrappy was offended. I guess I can see why, but it's to late now. Ryan was fun to hang with- always good for a laugh. He told me a a story once about driving up to Boone for school, and his derelict old VW started acting up. The gauges were going crazy, and he kept smelling smoke, but he couldn't figure out why. He kept going, and the smoke smell got worse and worse. Then he said, "But I knew something was wrong when I looked in the mirror and saw flames!" The story got even better from there. We also did a route at Cedar Rock that we called "Aunt Rose's goose berry jam", but I don't remember anything else about it. Yours Truly, The Pilsner Prophet

I'm not sure if I followed the original line. The traverse between the lower flake crack and the upper crack is the crux. Great short climb.

Great line! Fun climbing, good variety, and thoughtful pro issues for the leader.

It's basically just an easier start to Orangutan. The two climbs are the same after the first 25 feet.
