BETA PHOTO: Flaccid Ledge and Noggin

Description 

Somewhat ugly flake/crack system that climbs better than the choss at the bottom would imply. A few pebbles came off but nothing big seemed loose.

The pro is ok but not a great lead for someone breaking into the grade. Feels harder than Noggin and more sustained.

I enjoyed the climb due to rock-bottom expectations but it is definitely not a great route, at least until it cleans up a bit.

Protection 

Standard rack - tricams effective for shallow placements. 2 bolt top anchor shared with Wet Caulk
