Middle Finger is a ridge of rock that runs north-south. The shorter east face is considered the "backside", whereas the west face is Middle Finger Wall proper. Topropes can be set up from bolts at the top, by carefully scrambling up the ridge from the north end.
From the summit trail, take the same fork as for the Fortress area. Instead of descending into the Fortress area, continue on the trail a short way further to another descent that winds to the base of the east face of the Middle Finger (the "backside").

Same start as Pick-A-Dilly Prow but continue climbing straight out of the roof towards a rectangular hole then reach out towards the arete. Finishes out on much easier climbing. Watch out for the branches!...[more] Browse More Classics in NC
