Just left of Pretzel Logic you can look up and see a large jutting flake. Easy climbing up to the left side of the flake. Follow the large right slanting crack in the flake to its end then straight up. Tree belay. Easy hike off.


Big cam + normal rack

I am one of few people who did this route but during the fire this year a large tree fell across it and knocked most of it down so i think RIP to the flake...

Lee, you're the only other person I've ever heard of to do this route.
Easy come. easy go. Maybe we could glue it back on.

We're working on it, Tom. We have a derrick set up and have been lifting the pieces up and into place. Unfortunately, we ran out of glue..looking at some deals to buy by the barrel...hoping to add fifteen feet by adding a pillar at the top.

I saw the fallen tree and it missed the Flake. The route was untouched.
