Description:

3 pitches of steep flake and dike climbing. You can use an optional 3.5 cam on the first pitch, or run it out on easy climbing. The second pitch is the best, pass the small roof directly and climb into the dihedral until you are aobut half way up, exit the dihedral to the left and follow the flakes and crack to bushy ledge. Pitch 3 is a cake walk, take the 5.8 exit and use the #4 Camalot here, or head right and exit on 5.4 ground.

4 out of 5 stars Freaky hollow flakes

Some of that stuff's coming off one day soon. Good moves tough. Lead all pitches with See Eye and FoPo.

Meant to do the easy variation but partner forgot. Awkward last move.
