BETA PHOTO: Hanging Flake route follows hand crack up to the "...
A very short (~30') crack, good for kids and those wishing to practice jamming technique.
To descend, scramble up and left to the tree above Swan Slab Gully (3rd class). A single 60' rap to the ground from here.
On the right side of Swan Slab, about 20' left of the Aid Route (marked by a 4-bolt bolt ladder) and 30' right of Swan Slab Gully.
A few pieces. Gear anchor.

Very fun practice. Took some new guys (a dad and a 9 year old kid) up it and they loved it! Highly recommend to take new people up. Set the anchor just above the flake on gear then 3rd/4th class up and left to the tree and rap off.

I felt like everything was polished and insecure. If it was Tuolumne rock it would have felt bomber.

This route has become so polished from all the traffic, my partner and I thought it felt more like 5.8. We finished on the upper pitches of Swan Slab Gully and felt the grade to be much truer.

A very fun but all too short pitch; seemed very slippery and insecure due to lots of traffic that's polished the rock. I called it a 5.7, since it's significantly tougher than the Swan Slab Gully just "next door."

Very slick. Not sure about the 5.6 rating anymore.
