Takes a strenuous and rather thrilling line out the roof of the "cave" on the Rat Boulder. Start on arete at far left of cave (but still about five feet right of Unnamed V4), move up and right via long moves, poor feet, and an absolutely awesome slab crux when your feet are 10' off the deck. It's not over till you grab the top of the boulder!


Right of Unnamed V4, and about ten feet left of Rats of Nimh.


Multiple pads recommended. We ate it pretty good a few times before sending. Hire spotters if you have to.

So named because Finn (Bernd's son) was starting Kindergarten soon after the send. Finn was cheering us on, so it seemed only appropriate. The rock at the start isn't the finest, otherwise this problem would warrant more stars.
