Aaron enjoying this bit!


Tricky, tenuous, but interesting climbing up a giant, left-facing flake forming an OW against main wall. Protection is marginal without huge cams (> #4 Camelot), so can be a bit spooky, especially since crux section is down low.

Climb the flake up and right to gain a vertical wall on the left with ledgey breaks, good grit slopers, and better gear. Crux comes in middle of flake after a good resting stance.


Share start with Bishop's Route, climb the huge-right trending flake.


Cams. Big ones if you have them will make this lead less scary.
