"Hope this flake doesn't come off..."

Description 

A thin, tricky start through less-featured, smoother limestone with small pockets and small edges leads to steeper rock and bigger holds above. Exciting, strenuous liebacking along flake edges awaits, with the final move to the chains on welcome, slightly less steep terrain.

Location 

On the far right of the right-side alcove of The Arch Wall. The first bolt hanger is bright, and the line of bolts skirts the left side of a large bulge and then the left side of a smaller bulge/roof above. The anchor is hard to recognize from the ground because of its unusual configuration.

There are a number of hanger-less studs sticking out among the line's bolts.

Protection 

8 bolts to an odd anchor: one chain with a quicklink above a hanger with a steel, hardware-store carabiner.
