Description 

To the right of Flameout is a colorfully streaked overhanging and undercut slot that narrows at a bulge about 25' up, then continues as a wide crack to the rim. Crank up into the slot on good but hidden holds and tricky pro, then chimney for a bit before moving into stems on the outside of the slot. Stem and face climb past the second bulge. Above, easier stemming leads up the outside of the wide crack to the rim.

Location 

Just to the right of Flameout, this one should be obvious because of the watermelon-colored streaks coming down the slot.

Protection 

Many finger size cams and nuts, plus 1 ea cams to #4 camalot
