Description:

Take the South Face Approach and then follow the Ramp to the East Ledges. Look for a right facing dihedral. Pitch 1 (150 ft, 5.8+) start up the corner passing two bulges along the way to the bolt anchor. Pitch 2 (110 ft, 5.9-) follow the crack up to the Meadows. Up and to the right is a nice horizontal crack to set a gear anchor. Summit via the Meadows, or rap via Hollywood & Vine or take the El Cracko rappels.

Flash Flash ascent by: aarondh16 on 2012-09-22 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars crack to the. heavens!

I climbed with Felipe out of devils tower guides. We passed up on a few crowded routes and found this jem! I was very pleased to find a few " secret jugs" waiting at the top of the two pitches. A decent scramble got us to the top where energy bars provided a much deserved feast.

I love this climb, I went with Sebastian, climbing bum I met at the Tower, I went up and lead the first pitch, super good pro and solid climbing, Sebastian lead the second pitch and from there it is a frew short scrambly pitches to the summit!

5 out of 5 stars Soler

Very sustained climbing on both pitches with an uncomfortable hanging stance in between.
