Leading Bill's Flake route almost out of the diffi...
This is a short but fun route located on the far left side of Red Wall. Look for a large gully that separates Picnic Lunch Wall from Red Wall. Just right of this gully, there's a ledge system 15-20 feet above ground (accessible near its left side via 4th class "chimney") that runs along the base of the Red Wall. Bill's Flake follows a circular, 40-foot flake attached to main wall atop the ledge system.
Scramble up to the ledge system (class 4). Move up a short, left facing dihedral below the flake. Traverse left on perfect rock via hand jams and underclings (10-). Move up and follow left side of flake up and right to bolted anchor.
Cams from #.75 to #3 Camalot. Optional #3.5 Camalot.

Very good quality rock, moves and protection. It's just a bit short. Seldom climbed, but well worth it.
