Hot Flash, III, 5.8

4th Pitch- 180’- 5.6R/ This can be a hard pitch to follow per the beta we had. Not that hard to explain in my opinion though. Climb the easy chimney until it bends right. Take off left below a bulge on face climbing. Continue to traverse left as you climb diagonally up left on suspect rock with few if any placements. Eventually you find a decent crack. Follow the crack up to a comfortable belay ledge below the nice varnished wall above.

Awesome shot...

Re: Awesome shot...

Yeah, it DOES look cool...but you thought not so much based on your 2/5 star rating Dow? I thought that the FA list alone made the route worth doing :)
Great shot BTW!

Re: Awesome shot...

True, not so excited about this one Radek..found Larry's notes on it and he seemed excited about the route, but I am not so sure....prob a good mood day for him, not so much for me...or something like that...cheers
