BETA PHOTO: Melchsee: Trail Slab + Shelves from E B. Left Cor...

Description 

Four interesting sequences each with a different rock style.

Up the center (a bit right) of face of detached flake. Next step step down left behind top of flake to under overhang.
Straight over the overhang, and up to roof.
Pull the roof, then diagonal left up to steep face.
Up left edge of steep face.
. . Variation (more interesting): Instead go up left-of-center on steep face (5.10b).

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Location 

Twelve-feet-high detached flake which is about twenty feet uphill right from where main access trail meets cliff.

Protection 

No anchor hardware or intermediate bolts as of May 2017.

Top-Roping: Perhaps could use trees at the top of the cliff with static line as "natural" top anchor.

For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see Description page for Melchsee sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
