A really good mixed route starting with awkward moves to gain the obvious flake which ends at the horizontal. Climb directly above passing 4 bolts on the nice exposed face. Move left at the top and construct a gear anchor. The must-do climb on the formation.


Begin this climb down and to the left of the obvious flake, which doesn't extend to the ground.


Moderate rack for the flake and anchor, quickdraws for the bolts.
