This is the wide crack just 10 yds right of No White Flag (12a sport). It shares a start with Snake on a Tree (11a trad)but it continues up and left through a bombay chimney then a squeeze then a wide crack through a small roof. Latter being the crux, just stem, it'll be fine.


From No White Flag, go right @ 10 yds to a wide crack below a low roof with huge blocks on the ground beneath it.


standard rack of camalots, double 4,5 and a 6 friend for the bombay chimney down low.

Finally got on this route and it's WAY better than it looks and I expected. Definitely recommend!! A bit airy and runout through the chimney, but not too bad for the grade.
