A nice protectable flake. A combination of laybacking and crack moves can be used here. Turns into a face as you get higher up.


Standard Rack, shares the bolted anchor with pickpocket

I would NOT Lieback that flake; it's ready to pop any day now. We were are able to do this climb with ease using hand jams all the way inside that flake with a few face moves.
