The climb is located on the final big slab at the far southern end of the Eastern Reef. About the center of the slab a small cairn marks the start. Nice climbing with great views..
P1)Climb to a bolt at 60' then past another to double anchors. 200' 5.5R
P2)Up to a steeper section past two bolts then continue to below the broken band and double anchors.160' 5.7+R
P3)Move left then straight up slab to summit.200' 5.3R . Register in small cairn.
One can descend tricky 4th class down to the left or rap the climb.
The hike can be looked on as part of the experience!Start from Two Fingers Canyon camp.Hike south keeping to the flats until One Finger canyon is reached (about 30 mins). Hike to just left of the mouth of the canyon then break out up left to where it levels. Keep going to the final slab ,about another 1/2 hour.
Two quick draws.One or two 60m ropes
