One way out anyway. TJ goes up the flake.
Follow the climber's trail south from the Grocery Store Walls until finding a big roof in the Neanderthal area. The climb goes up the big dihedral to the right of the big roof. Climb up to the ledge where you can climb the dihedral, protecting the thin cracks with small nuts or you can layback the flake, protecting yourself with larger pieces.
Bring a few large pieces if pulling the flake or some some small nuts if doing the dihedral.

This route has only a few difficult moves, but they are closer to solid 5.8 and the crux lieback is committing. If I remember correctly, a #4 Camalot can protect the flake at the crux better than a smaller piece down low.

Don - The large wedge shaped block at the top of the flake is loose. My choice is to avoid the route.
