Lieback Flake as seen from Corner Crack

Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The left side of the obvious flake right of the Flying Circus. A heady route with limited pro- climb the flake to the top, clip a bolt, then climb straight up to the top.

Protection 

Gear (not much, a cam and a couple of nuts will do)

The bolt is missing its hanger. But if you're up for leading an R route anyway you might not care.

A serious lead for sure. Fortunately it feels a bit easy for 5.9 until after you clip the upper bolt.

I was toting both OW and the right small gear, and this felt solidly PG13. Barring that, though, I agree with the R rating.
