Flatus is a fun outing on Reed's. Start up a right trending finger rail that takes good gear between cliffside succulents. This terminates at an E-Z Squeeze chimney, before you pop back left on a short handcrack to a ledge. 5.8.

2nd pitch goes straight up the corner with fun stemming, jamming, smearing, scumming and chimneying. Sweet! Corner changes directions on fists at the top and then you enter another squeeze which deposits you on another big ledge.

The climb continues up for several more wide pitches...

Rappel the route (first two) with a single 60m off tat anchors.



Halfway between Lunatic and Stone Groove.


Gear to 4"

The words missing between the lines in this description are "old" and "school"! Good old-fashioned rock climbing, rarely crowded, and a pretty good way to get your Valley on.
