BETA PHOTO: Klingon Flake.

Description 

Follow a left facing flake up and to the right placing gear. At the top of the flake clip a bolt, move right (possibly placing more gear) and then up a crack. From the top of the cleft, face climb past two more bolts to the anchor.

Location 

Left facing flake approx 15 feet left of a wide crack/corner system near the north end of McQ's Pinnacle's west face. The crack system between this route and the wide crack/corner is Chewy's Tumble.

Protection 

Small to medium cams and nuts. 3 bolts + chain anchors on top.

Mtn Project currently has the location wrong in the L-to-R sort. Klingon Flake is immediately left of Chewy's Tumble on the north end of McQ's Pinnacle -- far to the left of Chantilly Lace.
