Description:

This route starts five to ten feet right of Wasp Flake at the left side of a large ledge. There appears to be two ways to climb the route and beta is hard to come by. Judging by the polish and smears from shoe rubber, most people climb up and slightly right onto the far left side of the ledge, beside a right facing corner. There is a very steep section that rises from the back of the ledge and heads to the top. The wall is vertical but full of jugs and protection placements. The finish is the same as mentioned below. The most obvious line is not used as much but starts in the same spot as the above description but goes straight up into an overhang located a few feet left of the ledge rather than climbing around the overhang to the ledge. Once above the juggy overhang, go up and slightly right towards the top. Climb up clean rock near some vegetation and belay at a tree between routes 7 and 9.

Descent Options:

Walk off on descent trail to the left or rappel from a tree.

4 out of 5 stars Another Fun Lead

When I was climbing this route I tried to follow the obvious polish from previous climbers and dark streaks from shoe rubber. The line went up to an overhang and then around to the right, ending up on the left side of a ledge. There is also a cool move up into the overhang that I completed on another route. Once on the ledge, I climbed a very steep section to the rear through some excellent hand holds that were easy to protect. Once over the steep section, I headed straight to the top and belayed from a tree.
