We found this area last Saturday, while searching for Armin's Crag. The weather was warm, and lots of climbers were in the canyon, but no one was at Fin Land, which faces generally southwest.

A. Short Overhanging Face

B. Overhanging Left-Leaning Arete
, 11-, 1p, 30', bolts & gear.
C. Ear Rings

E. Easy Crack

F. Hard Up
, 12+, 1p, 20', bolts.
