Finishing up on the fun flake.

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


A nice mix of climbing with a cool flake traverse on the first pitch
There are 3 route options for the 2nd pitch: Weekday Warrior, Hotshots, or the original (now very dirty) left facing corner.


If you locate the Warrior, hike up the hill till you come to a wide looking crack that is the start of Potato Chip Flake. It is the next route up the hill from that. You will see the flake feature above.


Standard rack up to 3".
2 bolt rap bolts at top of 1st pitch.
Rap off Hotshots or Prime rib at top of buttress.
Or walk off.
