Worth every bit of the grade, this pumpy climb mainly follows up the right hand side of the arete found on the right hand side of the upper wall of the Pleasure Palace. The arete is unmistakable and begs to be climbed.
Big holds make for smooth sailing through the first three clips. The business comes getting to the fourth bolt which requires a bigger move, some high feet, and pinpointing a little finger pocket to help fire high. The climbing eases after working through the crux and comes to an end shortly after. A great climb that offers clean lead falls at the crux.

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.
