The right most climb on the blocky pillar in the area (it has its own anchors). It's graded 5.9 but that first bolt will have you questioning your ability on how hard 5.9 can really be. You'll need a stick clip with some decent range to be able to clip the first bolt from the ground but it's worth it if you have any hesitations. It's too high to blow and not get hurt. Now that you are thoroughly scared...time to jump on the climb.
Gaining the first bolt isn't too hard and the route offers up a variety of options for reaching the anchors. Staying on the face felt a little harder than using the rounded arete up higher on the climb. The climb has a little bit of everything - knob romping, arete climbing, and small pockets. The climbing eases considerably after making your way two thirds up.

Mad Rock decided to give the Flash 2.0 an upgrade with the release of the Flash 2018 model. Having been a fan of the Flash 2.0 for years as a solid gym shoe, it was hard to believe that the shoe could get much better while staying at the same price point, but Mad Rock did it.
