Description:

From the ledge at the top of waverly/bev's, go right to the thin lieback crack. careful on the pro here, go straight up to the AWESOME wheat thin flake. One of the prettiest climbs in the Sierra Nevada. But; guess what? It was "chipped" into existence 25 yrs ago by a famed climber. ...still, a fine climb.

5 out of 5 stars a really fun pitch

Bottom part is the crux. The rest is a jug hall.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing feature

There's really only one move that's a little tricky getting to the big flake, otherwise its quite straightforward. I thought it felt the easiest of all the routes we did, Beverly's, Outer Limits and Wheat Thin.

Pretty big hollow flake. I don't see what all the hype's about. It's ok, interesting feature and all, but not a classic by any means. Lots of oppertunitys for rests.
