TR set up on Hidden Flake (5.10a variation)

Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Begin next to the large madrone and scramble the slab to the rose bush at the base of the large, detached flake. Choose to either climb the large crack located on the south side of the flake (5.10a) or head to the back side of the flake and ascend (5.9). From the top of the flake, clip the bolt and pull the thoughtful crux. From here on out it is easy 5th to the anchors.

Location 

The western end of Ramp Wall, where the trail dead ends.

The best route on this satellite wall. The 5.10a crack variation is fun and the gear is good. I placed a #3, but a #4 would have been even better.

Climbed the 5.10a variation and the chimney in the back yesterday. If someone is planning on climbing it it wouldn't hurt to bring a pair of garden sheers and cut the rose bush out of the crack. Fun crack though.
