    Great technical route. TR, mixed lead, or sketchy Trad climb. Gear- BD .75, BD #1, Large nut or BD.5 at jugs with an extension, clip bolt and run it out to the top! I've done it on all gear, but highly DON'T recommend it. Wouldn't wanna take a fall on the BD C3's in the flake.

    This climb is great all the way through, and a nice confident run out at the top. Probably 5.10a after the bolt.
