Description 

Flakes and Horns is the 2nd route from the left on the smaller buttress. There is some loose rock under the roof half way up. Be sure to carry a long runner for the slung horn before moving to the 2-bolt anchor. It is pumpier than it looks!

Protection 

5 bolts and a slung horn to the 2-bolt anchor (it shares anchor with Jams and Jugs).

Somewhat sketchy: only four bolts (not six) and some looseness. A 1.5 inch cam would be nice before the first bolt. But the climbing is steep and fun... felt harder than 10a.
