Description 

Finish Line starts on the Entrance Face hold and traverses left to finish on Entrance Arete. Crouch or sit start if possible on the flat basically one hand edge in the center of the steep face. This problem may appear V8 at first, but the dearth of footholds will prove otherwise. Make a long reach left to a five finger slot. It will help to have a long ape index to make the reach and skinny fingers to piano match in the slot. The holds are fairly okay. Put three fingers of your left hand in the slot, shift the feet, take one out to put the right three fingers into the slot, the surge left to the horizontal crack that marks the start of Entrance Arete (V2 or V3). Finish up and mantel on Entrance Arete. This problem was one of the last hard projects to fall at the Stables, and Tony dispatched it in a short time with minimal effort after it had received serious attention by many suitors.

Location 

Center of the blank overhanging face that faces the inside of the cave which is reached from the upstream entrance to the Cave (the direction of the entrance to the Stables).

Protection 

A single pad is adequate.
