Enjoying the summit of the Charlatan

Description 

The short but fun fingercrack to arete on the small spire on top of the Charlatan. Sorry, no summit register.

Location 

West side of the summit spire.

Protection 

Few finger-size pieces. The nasty old 1/4" bolts in the anchor were replaced in 2005.

Very fun little fingercrack. Cool location. Would get more stars if it was longer! 2 ASCA ring anchors on top.
