Description 

The Flagship is a large boulder/prow of rock in the Sunshine Dome massif. If you are standing facing northeast at the main southeast face of Sunshine Wall, you will see a fair sized slab below and left of it. This slab is Renaissance Slab. To the left of Renaissance Slab is a large gully. On the left side of this gully is The Flagship. Its southeast face is large and overhanging, with several possible crack/seam lines for aspiring parties.

Getting There 

See the directions for approaching Sunshine Dome (not Sunshine Wall!!!). This is potentially long and arduous.
