Description:

"To the right of Thin as Ice is a long waving thin flake that runs the entire height of the slab. From the three bolt belay, climb 25 feet of runout 5.7/5.8 friction to reach the flake. Climb to its top and traverse left to the two bolt belay. Protection can be a bit tricky as it is an expanding flake. Walk off or rappel."

not too bad, can get a bit crowded with all the people hiking by and stopping to watch.

Awesome route. Sucks up nuts in the lower half of the size range. Would be totally stellar on a dry sunny day. As it was, in the sprinkling rain and dim clouds, it was still awesome.

Super classic, but slimy when we were there.
