Climb the obvious left-facing corner system just right of Drug of Choice utilizing the plentiful face holds and then continue past one bolt on the face above to anchors on a large ledge.


Gear to 4", bolt, chain anchors

Agreed. I warned my belayer about the flake near the top.

Flake still feels like it just waiting for an overzealous climbing to rip it off the top. Not sure about 'plentiful' face holds, definitely had my shoulder and foot in the crack and squirmed my way up with limited foot placements worth getting excited about out of the crack. Flake give your body a break, but you definitely hustle off of it.

I counted one hand jam at the bottom, and maybe two foot jams. Other than that its a sorta strange face climb in a corner, still a little loose but worth doing once.
