Middle Finger Backside

2013 Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The overhanging start favors the tall. Need a boost, shorty? Yard up to the flake on good holds, then follow the flake casually upward to a small ledge with a bolt above it. (Trust me, it's there.) Continue upward to the top.


Location 

Roughly in the middle of the wall. Look for a right-facing flake system that leads up to a small horizontal ledge about 40 feet up.


Protection 

light rack, bolted anchors on top

This is in no way a hard route but it has some really fun moves! If you aren't overly tall there is a neat mantle move off the finger ledge 2/3rds up. If taking gumbies watch that they dont put their finger in the bolt at the crux... dont want any lost fingers

Cheers!
