Just north of Independence Monument is a buttress with a ledge system about a pitch up. There are clearly other routes here that have been climbed. There is potential for upper pitches here.

This line follow a crack system that goes up to the right side of this ledge area. Follow the crack to a great rest about a third of a rope up. Upper section is stiffer. On the first ascent there was a good looking flake (name inspiration for the climb) that became an IFO making the traverse more solid. About 2/3 of a rope.

The ledge system has a decent tree at left edge for a double rope rappel. Slings and rings left.


Friends: 2 #1, 2 #2, 2 #2.5, 2 #3, 2 #3.5, 1 #0, 1 #4, 1 #4 Camalot (old size). 3 #2.5 and 3 #3 Friends might be nice.
