The Flash Gordon Area is a collection of problems in a side canyon on the right side of the trail between the Long Valley and Trailside Areas. Problems of all sorts and grades are found here with short one-move-wonders, long traverses, scary highballs, slabs and roofs.
Hike past the Ranger Station and the trail junction bearing right and continue for about 100 meters to a spot where the trail crosses a slab of granite. From here veer right at about 2 o'clock and follow a trail which leads to the mouth of the canyon - the Warm-up Boulder will be quickly visible on the right side of the trail.
