Shares anchors with Carolyn, but instead of heading left for the break, goes straight up the wall, fun moves. Commonly called "Sean's climb", as Sean Elliot put it up, but the actual name is "Black Flag".

Descent Options:

Cold shuts at the top - lower.

2 out of 5 stars A bit awkward

I climbed this the same day Sean put it up. Not my favourite climb here, just because of the hard clip before the crux and the traversing nature of the climb. Probably more like 10d
