Climb the left facing flake to flaring dihedral. The crux comes about 2/3 of the way up where the corner appears to be an overhanging, flaring offwidth. Luckily, it's not as bad as it looks from the ground.


On the far right-hand end of the Roadwork Wall. Descend via 3rd class ledges and slabs to the right.


Gear to #4 Camalot. You might want two #4's if this is your limit. Build your own anchor at the top.
