  • Description 

    A short distance to the right of the Stainless Steel 'Rete there is a left-facing, left-arcing system of flakes. From the ground, climb up into this to a mini "roof" (5.8, small wires) and then follow the flakes (5.7 or less, wires and small cams) as they go up and left past a sling on a horn (bad pro) to a ledge. At the ledge, continue up and left to a flaring seam and then up that vertically (5.7, S) to the top of the cliff.
    To descend, belay and then climb down and right to the cold-shuts rappel on Zimbra.


    Just right of Stainless Steel 'Rete and just left of Zimbra. This is the obvious, thin, left-facing, left-leaning (arcing) flake system.


    Mostly small nuts and cams. Several 2' slings. Tricky in some spots, a little runout in others. NOT a beginner lead.
