4 out of 5 stars The traverse scared the hell out of me

The lower half of the climb was easy and enjoyable... But I found that hand traverse to be really scary. The handholds aren't that positive, and the footholds barely exist. The bolt in the middle of the traverse was really hard to clip - not a good stance at all. Took a bunch of falls until I cheated by standing on the other bolt to make the clip. I wasn't tall enough (or skilled enough) to be able to pull up the sloper to the higher hold, I had to traverse all the way to the arete. I felt the traverse was harder than 5.10b. Everyone in my party found it terrifying looking, and only 1 out of 5 who top-roped it was able to get to the arete without cheating.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb - strenuous roof, balancy flake

Roof was strenuous for me, but holds made it quite doable. Flake was balancy - easy to feel like you're going to barn door.

Flash Flash ascent by: cliffmama on 2008-03-29 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, straightforward

Easy to protect, straightforward climb. Descent downclimb had a couple of tricky moves requiring belly slithering down rocks feet first and hoping your feet reach.

4 out of 5 stars Very easy for its grade

Found this one really easy, shocked that i t was a 5.8. Maybe 5.5 or 5.6 at most. Only tricky spot is the first moves if you're short. Easy lead - lots of gear, and can easily wander over to set up top ropes at the bolted anchors for the harder climbs to the climbers' left.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent climb

Nice combination of delicate thin face and burly overhangs. Cruised this one easier than Child's Play (5.10d) next to it on the right. Good holds at lip of overhang, then you just got to move fast and power through the next few moves so you don't burn your arms out. Top-roped it, so take my comments accordingly.
