Boulder up to a lovely crack. Then things get interesting. Sling the flake? I would, even though it looks like the luckiest of earthquake survivors! Why? Well a certain guidebook promises "spaced solid pro" after this, but this must be the Fantasy Factory haze entering the author's mind - either that or the quake closed up all the cracks. NO PRO until close to top out! (unless you count a big hex jammed into a pocket like a coathanger) . Quite a dangerous route... (easy climbing, say 16, during the runout though, if you like that kind of thing) - or perhaps the haze entered my mind and I went off-route: only one way to find out!
