I did this route on Wednesday after a final. After the traverse, that flake is way sketchy and a little focus is needed to get to that other flake. I definitely give the traverse section to the other flake, about 20 feet, a PG-13 or S rating. #3 cams can be used in the flake above to get to the other ledge.
When I was on top of the last flake trying to mantel onto the last ledge, I broke a small rock off that I was using for my left hand and landed back on the ledge, thankfully. Watch out for loose rock on this buttress, especially the first pitch.
Crack is amazing though, to bad it didn't go another hundred feet. It is a cake walk compared to left hand, which is still pretty easy.

|There is a bolt anchor at the top of Mirror Crack that will land you back on the ledge with the large tree just barely with one 60m rope.|
