Peruvian Flake is a fun wondering route that follows the contours of a flake/dihedral up the center of a clean face. Where the flake ends, move left across a thin face and then follow flaring cracks to the top.
This route starts about 10' left of Dean's Day Off at an obvious dihedral.
Standard rack up to a 2" or 3" piece with one fixed pin. Two bolt anchor at the top.

Warning, as of 06/28/08 the right bolt at the anchor is loose and moves around inside the hole.

Fun route despite the wandering. The flake itself is quite easy. You can get a very good #3 Camalot at the far side of the obvious slot. All 3 in our party thought the crux was the easy looking crack at the very top. I used a fist jam to top out.
I thought I had heard about Peruvian Flake. It turns out it's a climb in the Royal Arches area of Yosemite which may be where I heard of it. It's also a prized variety of cocaine, apparently.

Wrong again. I did the FA with Chris Landry, Kennedy was not there. We rated it 5.10. There were no fixed pins or anchors. It was fun.
