Proceed to the climber's left from Ultegra, follow the main wall around to the right for about 80 m to find a thin crack that widens above a small platform. Gain the platform and look right for a finger-size horizontal placement. When the crack ends head up and right to a bushy shelf with great protection. There is finger-sized gear above, will need an extended 2"-cam in the hueco under the hemlock. Rap from the hemlock--trunk is visible from ground. Gear: a few 24" slings, double rack 0-#3.

False Flat: In cycling, a stretch on a long hill that looks flat and tricks you into thinking you've reached the top when there's still more climbing to do.

Glad to see folks sticking with the naming theme.

Nice name. Got me thinking...there is also the issue of D flat versus C sharp scales. Perhaps we can discuss the broader implications of such later, Art? Flunker

Not a bad route but there is definitely some route searching involved. I did not really go to the right much at all (just a little toward the bushy shelf then back left) but stayed left or went more straight up to the lay down hueco. Out of the lay down hueco I went left up a short crack and topped up with the help of some rhodo. The face directly above the hueco is bare bare bare and will leave you questioning the best way to the top. Just suck it up and commit right or left. It is scary either way.
