Description:

Start on the left facing flake/corner at the left of "Frosted Flake", on Upper Broadway ledge. Climb the flake/dihedral up and at the end of it, traverse left to the first belay (shuts). The second pitch goes up and left the right facing corner to the summit ledge. Even if the 2nd pitch looks less friendly than the 1st, the first pitch is the crux.

5 out of 5 stars P1 only - hot, but lots of fun!

I remember pinching overhanging flakes and saying "whoa!"

Hot day, after climbing P1, we setup a TR at the bolts with a directional to TR Frosted Flake.
