Lindsay Duca on "Finger it Out"

Photo by, Chris D...


A lot of action at the Barkeater went down in May of 1982, and this route was the hardest to fall during that month.

A tricky start right off the deck leads to some sustained crack climbing for about 15 to 20 feet. Get a good rest, then tackle the steep headwall above. Finish over the bulge and build a belay at the tree roughly 20 feet back from the cliff's edge. This route may feel a little hard in the grade; however, once you "finger it out", it should be a cruise for the grade.


far to the left of the massive boulder leaning against the center of the cliff (to the left of "Mr. Clean") is an ampitheater. This route climbs the obvious, clean finger crack on the far left side of this feature.


Small to medium units, plus a healthy selection of nuts.
