This short climb is found on what looks like a stand-alone block just as you finish up the switchbacks at the start of the Misery Ridge trail. The climb starts up edges to the first bolt before passing through large pockets and jugs that make for gym-like climbing. The final moves of the climb are the crux as you reach through and find a good hold to clip the anchors. If this climb were longer it would definitely up the star-rating but it is over before you know it. Makes for a good intro to 5.10 climbing.

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.
