Mike getting over the flake

Description 

Climb up the orange and black flake to a decent stance about 6-7 ft off the ground. There is a finger size crack in back of the flake. Plug in a few small cams. Fire through the delicate layback and clip the first bolt from a solid jug. Move left from the first bolt clipping two more bolts from positive but pumpy holds. After the bulge, run it out through easy terrain to the anchors.

Location 

Left of Midday Lightening. The route begins on a nice orange and black flake.

Protection 

3 bolts plus finger size cams. We took C4s from .3 to .75. There is a bolted anchor up top.

My girlfriend and I both loved this route. We went to Haw specifically to do For Whom the Bell Tolls and liked this route more. I listed it as 11a cause that's what Cole Fennel calls it in the book, but it's soft for the grade.
