Description 

This climb is a massive right-trending flake and corner system, perhaps 50m uphill from the bolted routes Slab Left and Slab Right.

The route's length is made longer by the fact that the flake system continuously leans strongly right. It is mostly a crack, but climbs much of its length like a juggy hands-traverse.

I did not place any gear on this but found it likely that the route would take mostly solid gear from 2-3.5" along its length.

To get down, downclimb the route or walk up the ridge 20m to the raps above 'Move Like A Stud' or if that is missing or in disrepair, downclimb the 4th class descent even higher.


Protection 

A set of hexes and cams, heavy on the hands+ sizes if you want lots of gear. This crack/flake is thin in a few places and may require some attention to place good gear. Might not be a great beginenr climb
