About The Flakes:

This area is largely centered on two large sections of rock that have sheared off of the main cliff. There is also a boulder down below the Flakes that juts out from the hill and forms a cave.
Approach: The Flakes area is directly below the tower at Garrett Mountain. It is next to the main cliff face.
Approach Time: 5 minutes from the car
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Visitors to this area must keep a very low profile. The Inchworm Traverse is within easy site of a road and a well traveled path. It's also about 100 yards directly uphill of a police station. To date, no tickets have been issued, however people have been given warnings and asked to leave.
Rock Type: Basalt
Type of Climbing: Bouldering
Sun Aspect: Morning Sun
