Just north of Independence Monument is a buttress with a ledge system about a pitch up. There are clearly other routes here that have been climbed. There is potential for upper pitches here.
This line follow a crack system that goes up to the right side of this ledge area. Follow the crack to a great rest about a third of a rope up. Upper section is stiffer. On the first ascent there was a good looking flake (name inspiration for the climb) that became an IFO making the traverse more solid. About 2/3 of a rope.
The ledge system has a decent tree at left edge for a double rope rappel. Slings and rings left.
