Pulling through the Bionic Finger Crack

Access Restriction: Parking MORE INFO >>>


Bionic Finger Crack is located on the Tunnel Bluff just to the left of Dislocation Overhang. The climb shares the same easy first 35 feet (5.5) as Dislocation and then veers left up the obvious little seam. Look for the little pocket, which will be of little use, and then try to jam your fingers into the seam and pull up. If you are leading, your fingers will be in the placements and placing at waist level will be a trick. Try to work your toes into the seam or toe hook the corner. Smearing seems like a good idea and would be if the rock had any friction! It's short, but sweet and will make you feel like a real dude!


A few feet to the left of Dislocation...shares the roof so look for the only overhang.


Top rope or a few nuts in finger-tip size.
