Top of pitch 3 of Flake Route. Great views!
Sticky situation MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Pitch 1: Belay up as high to the left leaning corner system as possible, after a short scramble. Face and undercling out corner, then continue up to small ledge cut out after the corner goes straight up for a ways.

Pitch 2: Continue up left facing corner as the face gets lower angle. Belay where convenient.

Pitch 3: Follow last of corner to where it rolls over and melts into the face. Follow face to top and when the face goes to more walking than climbing, build a belay and bring up the partner.

Great views, nice position, good protection and good rock.

Fun!


Location 

Located on the right side of the Moonstone Slab. Obvious left facing corner system with a cutout near the bottom.

Walk down easy slabs to the east and north to regain the base of the route.


Protection 

Standard Rack (cams and stoppers). No fixed gear or anchors on route.

Yea, what a cool route. You can't believe you're so fortunate to have found such a cool place to climb to boot.
