Hot Flash, III, 5.8
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
5th Pitch- 100’- 5.7/ Pitches 5 and 6 are comprised of the best rock on the route. Traverse right into a beautiful varnished splitter crack reminiscent of the last pitch of Birdland. The wall above gives the appearance that you can do it in one push. But the original route designers thought it best split up by stopping in less than 100’, and traversing right about 15’ on obvious easy ground into a large crack, thus comfortable belay. There was a fixed station here in 2008 that was not done properly and thus we did not use it nor need it.
