The steep clean wall right of the hanging flake is quite technical and good holds above the overlap may prove elusive on first acquaintance

The nicest, and hardest, of its grade in this sector. Some tricky moves through the overlap require the use of some ellusive holds unless you cop out and step right towards The Shattered Pillar. Very much deserving of a star or two.
