Description 

This fun lead starts on Wasp Flake, but heads straight up where Wasp Flake continues left at the top of the ramp. The crux is the face climb just above the ramp to the first ledge on the right above the roof (see Mist).

Location 

This climb follows Wasp Flake to the top of the ramp. At the top, head straight up the left side of the large flake. Above the flake, angle right and up between the munge and grass to the top.

This can be done as a single pitch, but communication will be a challenge. Don't belay from the first ledge above the flake and roof, because it is home to a large nest of hungry ants.

You can top-rope either with belay from the top, or rappel from a tree at the top to the 1st pitch belay ledge and set gear to belay from the bottom.

Protection 

Pro is standard NC rack, and very available. Use a tree at the top.
