Amazing, thin slab to the right of Vanishing Flakes. Heads up and left to the bolt (not the piton) on Vanishing Flakes, and then heads up and right through a blank face to a ledge. Scramble or solo the 5.5 crack to the top, or else protect it with a few wide pieces. UPDATE: after a bolt appeared that protected the runout section at the bottom (and after critical holds broke rendering that section harder than it was) someone chopped the bolt, hammered the poop out of it and scarred the rock surrounding it. now you can't clip it, loop a wire on it or even ignore it.

Breath-taking! This route makes Vanishing Flakes look juggy. It's humbling to know that Pat S. has soloed this up to the first (formerly second) bolt, before finishing on Vanishing Flakes.
