Climb the face/arete of the flake past a few bolts to reach a slightly steeper section of face below a slab. Work up the vertical face on underclings and then make the "stand up" move to transition onto the lower-angled, but less-featured slab above. A short bit of slab concludes the pitch and leads to anchors on a sloping ledge.

A fun route in that the lower section of the climb is well-featured and sets you up for the "stand up" move, which will either have you laughing or crying as you ponder the laughable nature of the holds at the crux.


Located about 100' left of Lost Orbit and somewhat left of center on the wall at a large left-facing flake behind a fallen tree.


5 bolts, bolted anchor/rap

That's not the only mistake in the current guidebook, more like the tip of the iceberg.

It gets you off the bolt line, but if you traverse left to the right leaning crack, the grade drops significantly. The feet are extremely thin regardless though.
