A bouldery start with very little protection makes the start of this climb interesting. Boulder up past thin holds to a good horizontal. Put in a bomber piece and breathe. Continue up and right past horizontals and crimpy flakes to the base of a crack. Jam and layback this pumpy crack to the top.
On the back side of Celebrity Flake (Train Time, etc), up hill off the trail.
Rap rings. Trad gear.

Very fun and easy to TR from the other side. Back when I was first figuring out how to climb trad this inspired me to want to do steeper gear routes. (though I moved before I felt like I could lead it...) Great climbing.

This is an exciting climb, pumpy but fun. At this point, it's hard to picture myself leading it, but flashing it on toprope was plenty satisfying. Don't pass this up if you've led one of the easier lines on the other side of the Celebrity Flake!
