Beginning up the fun hanging flake.

Description 

This classic, popular moderate offers stellar jugs on a steep wall almost the entire way, culminating in a balancey crux just below the anchor. Trad skills will come in handy for the flake encounter midway up.

Follow the brief slab to a steep, corral-textured wall. Make big reaches between perfect jug pockets to a good flat edge in white stone. Traverse left via a flake on the prow to a short, left-facing groove and a good kneebar. Lieback the groove to a stance in an alcove, then bear hug the detached flake to the horizontal break. Slab your way up to the next break, and a long easy run to the anchor.

Location 

The third route from the left end of the cliff, climbing up to a hanging flake.

Protection 

~6 Bolts to 2 BA.
