Description 

This is the right-facing flake/corner that arches into a roof, located at the right end of the cliff. Begin with a mantle to get into the corner. Climb the crack and various features past a couple tough sections. The flake becomes an under-cling near the end and you must make a difficult reach (11a) to a fingerlock and then pull into the thin crack above. The climbing eases to the anchors.

The rock quality is suspect in a couple areas, but you can mostly find solid pro. The lichen is pretty thick on this one too. The climb would improve with more traffic.

Protection 

Pro to 4", 2 bolt anchor rap.

I added some fresh webbing to the bolted anchor in May 2011, but what it really needs is a couple quicklinks with rap rings.

Anchor seems to have been upgraded, fun climb, deserves more traffic and stars!
