Climb the thin flake (fingers) heading slightly left and then straight up to an overhang. Pass the overhang on the right and into a corner. Traverse 8 Ft. right to access a Bombay hand/finger crack (crux) and follow to the top. This route is much cleaner than it appears from the ground. The walls on either side of the crack have lots of lichen, but the holds that you need are all very clean. Some of the rock near the overhang is a little broken, but very stable.
Flake near the right facing corner about 50 Ft. to the left of Carcus Tunnel Syndrome.
Mostly small gear ( < 1"). Bring a few nuts and a #2 and #3 Camalot are also helpful. No anchors at top as of 11/07 but there are plenty of trees to build an anchor.
