Route Description 

This route climbs a slab about 150' uphill from the big roof that characterizes a route called Dumb Fun. Start left of bushes growing in a crack.


This route is unprotectable until you are near the top. A fall would likely be fatal.


Scramble down/right and climb down the bushy crack or continue up Razor Flake.

Does this start left of the big bushes? How's that gear? Or the flake above?

The flake above (Razer Flake) is pretty cool. I think the line drawing of Razer Flake is not accurate.

I might be wrong but this route might have 3 bolts on it... At least there are three bolts leading up to the base of razor flake.
