Description 

This sexy looking finger crack is capped off with a tricky lower angle slab. Solid fingers and hand jams up a near to vertical wall. Super stellar for the grade. One of kind route for the Rushmore area.

Location 

The second route you encounter on the approach. Follows a slightly leftward arcing finger crack that terminated about 70' up. Located about 20' right of "Love Above".

Protection 

One set of stopper, one set of cams .4" to 3", slings & quick draws.
Bolted chain anchors
