This is a really fine route with some interesting moves and good holds. The problem gets harder higher up and you need to have your wits about you when committing to the finishing moves. Begin in a sit start with your right hand pinching the right arete of Flake 2 and your left on a chalked side pull/pinch grip on the face. Place your feet on some large holds inches off of the ground and pull on. Slap up higher on the arete with the right and make powerful move up and left to an edge on the face for the left hand. Move your right foot onto a small, hard to see edge and lunge up to pinch a loose block on the arete. Bring your left foot up and bring the left hand up to a small edge about two feet left of the arete. Reach up into an alcove for a layback with the right hand. Step around the arete to the right for a good right foothold. Then move up and put feet on some small edges. Left hand goes put to a small right facing corner for a layback. Stabilize. Reach up and to better holds near or at the horizontal break. Move around to the right about 6 feet below the top. The problem is over. Downclimb.
