Fifi Buttress To Close! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A small dihedral with a tips crack widens to fingers before petering out onto a featureless slab past several bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

The climb isn't terribly steep, allowing for a great deal of smearing and face climbing even in the crack-protected section.


Location 

A few hundred feet east of the Royal Arches route, and roughly 30-40' east of Poker Face.


Protection 

Small cams and medium nuts for the crack section, and draws after that.
