Description:

"A few yards left of Sickle Face, climb flakes past a right-facing corner to a finish up the crack in the corner." (From VA, WV, and MD guidebook by Eric Hörst) A fun variation is to start from the big ledge, climb the face to the right of the Snowflake and left of Sickle Face, staying close to but not using the corner or the crack on Snowflake. (5.10ish?)
