Brett belaying for me on eight flake during the on...

Description 

One of the most popular climbs at Reimer's Ranch. Look for a prominent, right-facing flake that goes straight up the left side of Prototype Wall, with a smaller flake above it the slants to the right. Climb past three bolts to the top of the flake (about two thirds the height of the wall), and then transition to the smaller flake above. The crux is moving between the two flakes on some thin holds. Finish at the anchors directly above Bisector. Expect to wait in line for this one.

Protection 

Five bolts to anchors.

Eight flake without runners. Works without, but I would recommend bringing a couple to reduce rope drag.

5.6 climbing gets you up to the 5.8 crux as the top. A must do if your first time at Reimers, get there early it can get crowded.
