  • Description 

    Delicate knobby flake that leads to cool but a bit vegetated corner which thins and disappears (at the anchor). The climbing is not hard, but with a combination of potentially fragile knobs plus thin cams behind a not-super-bomber flake, this is a somewhat serious lead with an "alpine" feel.


    Start up the easy start of the 5.7 flakes approach to You Asked For It/Lechlinski Flake/Swinger (about 100' down and left from Ciebola), then head up the left-facing flake above. There are more flakes to the left, this is the first one you can get to.


    Pro to 2" plus 3-4" cams for easy approach climbing (giant flake). Extra thin finger-finger cams for flake. Two bolt anchor. Use a 70m rope to lower, although it's probably possible to carefully rappel a bit right with a 60m.
