This is not actually located on Nook's Rock but on one right beside it. You can climb the arete from the left to the top for a V1 problem, or start from a sit down and climb straight up with a long throw on really chalked holds just below the lip and then top out V4. Either way a nice warm up set, as most of the problems at Nook's Rock.


Perhaps want to use a crash pad - not necessary.

The rock leaves me unsure of how to sit this problem. Is the right wall on for the feet or no?

The right slab is on for the 5.6 variation.

That Flakes It is a V1.

This seems like it's not posted properly. There are two distinct problems on this boulder and they should be listed as individual routes: That Flakes It (V1) and That Flakes it Overhang (V4). It's a bit misleading to have two completely different problems posted together as a V-question.

1. That Flakes It V1 sds ... FA: Unknown
From a sds around on the far left, hand traverse up and right up large holds to the corner, then pull over.
2. That Flakes It Direct V4 ... FA: Rob Candelaria, 1974/5
Start on good holds under the overhang. Keep your feet off the right wall as you do powerful moves out the overhanging face. A sds looks possible.
3. That Flakes It Super Direct V? sds ... FA: Dan Smith and Dan Howley, late 1990's
A sit start to #2 that begins on a thin LH hold and microcrimp for the RH. Move up and slightly right into the start for #2.
