|(04) Showdown Wall
This is one of the best easy routes at the crag, but requires (very minimal) gear. Good to TR beginners on.
Heads up a right facing flake / finger crack and then a crack / slab.
You can also lead the the crack in the corner 3 feet left of the flake or any combination of the two you like and stay at 5.7.
I prefer to do one then the other for the most bang for my buck.
75 feet left of Sweet Jane at a place where the trail jogs downwards a few feet.
Single set of cams (C4) from 0.3 to #1. Doubles of 0.4 and 0.5 if you are worried. Single set of nuts would be fine too. 2BA.

Carolyn Parker and I put up this route in 2004 or so. Finger Flake is as good of a name as any.
