Description 

Start in water groovy hand crack at the base of the wall. Follow to ledge. Climb a short but ever steepening face avoiding the massive semi detached blob on right. Handrail right to obvious break. Pull roof (crux) to decent stance. Continue up steep jugs to broad ledge. Finish straight up a steep face with beautifully featured holds.

Location 

The Fin, Wolf Wall area. Follow trail to the front side of the Fin formation left and down from Wolf Wall (backside of the Fin faces the Wolf Wall Gully). NOTE: PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING THE WOLF WALL GULLY. IT IS FRAGILE EARTH!!

Protection 

Pro to #3 Camelot. Two bolt anchor for rap or top rope.

Maybe the most dangerously chossy route at Steele. Certainly one of the scariest and of dubious quality. On the plus side, a very good seat to belay from. Sling everything long as drag can be a monster....

Left of this line is the neighbor's property and off limits for climbing.
