BETA PHOTO: Flakeview

Description 

A couple of very hard moves (the hardest on the route) get you to a stance and the first bolt. Continue up the face aiming for the right edge of a "flake/block" then an arching crack. And onwards to the top passing a few more gear placements.

Location 

Flakeview Area. Left of Gunboat Diplomacy, near a tree.

Protection 

Bolt, gear and rap anchors on Silent Treatment.

Okay, best I can guess this is "Flakeview". If this is incorrect, post up and it can be changed.

Also, a lot of crispy/flakey edges on this one.

The first bolt is on Flakeview and Silent Treatment. For Flakeview clip the first bolt, cam in a pocket and up the corner crack right of the bolt line to who knows were. Bring some leaver slings for the tree ledge. Good Luck.

I did not climb it, but when my friends did, we got pelted with broken rock fall. This happened 4 times with 1 person climbing the route! I was able to luckily dodge a rock, but a dog got hit with 1 piece. I recommend the climber, belayer and spectator to be on your toes for loose, friable rock that WILL come down on you!

Okay, hopefully the picture will help clear things up. Also you may be able to head to the rap rings that are on Silent Treatment.
