Ascend smooth vertical rock past a bolt and a quartz band, reaching a small roof. Consider clipping the second bolt with a sling to reduce drag before pulling the surprisingly mild overhang. Work past some grungy rock, especially on the left, and dart up a bit of low angle terrain. Nearly vertical face with small edges makes up the next section before yielding pleasant jugs in green rock.

In my opinion, Nang is a harder and better route. But if you are in the area you might as well do both.


Noodler is located on the east face of Blazing Fin, which is a subsection of North Fin. To reach the route hike around either side of North Fin to the southern corner, which is the lowest point of the formation. Noodler is the leftmost bolted route. The route is immediately to the left of Nang.


Bolts and chains. There is some distance between bolts 2 & 3 and 4 & 5 but in both places the climbing is moderate.
