Static or dyno to the top of the flake. Now suck up and head straight up on surprisingly worrying holds to the top. Some people exit left which is not as worrying.


On the west side of Boulder 1.

Good problem. Technical down low and a little spicy up top.

Getting to the Boot Flake and then traversing left is also a fun problem, and not nearly so worrying!

If exiting left from the lil' crystal ball, be careful on the mantel. Don't pull too hard out. That thing feels like it's ready to come off soon. Straight up is a better finish anyway. It's easier, just kind of scary.

Went right of the boot. Seemed way more sustained that way.
