Description 

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. Mike Endicott and I did six routes here, last Sunday. The weather was warm, and no one else was near. Who knows who bolted the routes and did the FAs?

L->R:

A. Short Overhanging Face, 12?, 1p, 25', bolts.
B. Overhanging Left-Leaning Arete, 11-, 1p, 30', bolts & gear.
C. Ear Rings, 10-, 1p, 55', bolts +/- gear.
D. Edgy, 9+, 1p, 55', bolts +/- gear.
E. Easy Crack, 5, 1p, 65', gear.
F. Hard Up, 12+, 1p, 20', bolts.

Getting There 

From the northwest extension of Mine Hole Crag, follow a vague trail northwest. After losing the "trail" and continuing uphill and west, some outcrops crop out of the forest. Look for three bolts on a detached phallus. Keep going west to find the other routes. Fin Land lies SW and downhill from Armin's.
