Description 

A good climb up an obvious and sharp flake that creates a dihedral. Straight forward climbing but the crux could easily result in a broken ankle if you fall on lead (foot jam, not ground fall...)

Location 

Northwest Bluff

Protection 

Cams and hexes to #3

Big gear good to have here; watch out for hornets to the left.
