BETA PHOTO: Dirt Track starts in the center of the picture and...


P1 - Climb a slabby start and step right onto the black face and finish at a large ledge (5.9). Eds. named Dirt Track.

P2 - Do a mantle move off the belay and then follow the right-facing, right-angling dihedral to the top (5.11c).


Look for the dihedral on P2 that is a little downstream of Brady's Route.

So, is this named Flat-track or Soul-Kitchen?

I'm pretty sure Tim Kuss and Chris French bolted this one.

I did Soul Kitchen, and it's not in the photo. It is to the right, goes up slab to dihedral. Jimmy S. told me the dihedral (at the finish) had been done as a TR and I just added the beginning pitch. There were no bolts on the route I did.

The 5.8 first pitch of this route is called Dirt Track. I mean to go back and add a bolt to Flat Track where there is a nasty fall potential after the third bolt.

Did this route in one pitch with a 70m. I had to belay the second from a ledge where the first belay anchor is at. The rope got really heavy up there.
