Begins in a gully behind a tree, up and over a boulder, and in to a wide crack. Get established in the right facing wide crack. Offwidth technique (or fists if you have larger hands) will be a benifit here. Awkward, and in my opinion, harder than the Vogel book's rating.


Above and right of the finish for Leap Year Flake. Look for the right slanting wide crack.


Thin cams and a couple larger (BD #4 or #5) to protect the wide.

I added this with the rating in the Vogel guide. I'd say it's awkward 5.8. For me at least. The biggest piece I had was one #4. Would have felt better with a #5, maybe two (rather than pro-ing in the crappy deteriorating crack inside the wide).

Is route the Dihedral with a crack in the corner above the rap anchors? If so I would agree its not 5.6.
