If it didn't suffer from a foot of munge rock on the top of the flake this would be 4*. Luckily the shit rock is avoidable via large holds on the face to the right. Good warmup for the wall!

who's the lurky creeper in the pic?

Some guy I found sleeping in the cave to the left. He had a whole little methamphetamine production going out there. Pretty cool guy.
dustonian said on March 6th, 2013
Haha did you let him take a run up your sick proj?
Cromper said on March 6th, 2013
He hiked it onsite even though it was missing 4 bolts.

Perfect warm-up for the wall!

Good little route. It never even occurred to me to use the top of the flake where the rock gets bad, as there are tons of holds on the face. Cool top section.

Climbed on 04/23/2016, did not see any poor quality rock. Moving up the snow cone will be tough if you can't hand jam. Rest of the route feels like 10c climbing, with a neat throw in there. Anchors clip off an amazing flat ledge at the top.

Ya it might be tough if you can't walk up a ramp.

The bad rock must have cleaned up by now, or I didn't go that far to the left. Great route. Felt a bit tough for the grade, but it might the the 90F temps takling.
