The Great Flake is one of the larger pieces of granite that has separated from the main body of Buck's Bar Dome, forming the Puff Passageway behind it. The most popular climbs here are short, face southeast, and most memorably involve some offwidth moves.

Getting There 

Follow the best developed use trail downhill and southeast of Dinkum Gulley, zig zagging through a log and stepping down a tall granite step, then winding north along the base of the dome.
