Description 

A varied and stiff crag, the fins host primarily sport lines with at least two pure trad lines. Fixed anchors can be found on almost all routes. This area sits right on the road so extra caution is advised as the river makes it difficult to hear cars.

Getting There 

This is the fifth most significant roadside buttress after Passage Creek trailhead.

Low crux is tricky and insecure, but protected with a bolt. Pull past bolt into nice crack and plug a piece or two (large stoppers, #.75 and/or #1 BD C4). Step out right and make a few moves on perfect horizontal edges to the second bolt. Continue on edges straight up to horizontal break and another gear placement (small/medium stoppers, offsets can be helpful). Head straight up into tricky gaston moves and the final bolt. Reach out left then follow the arĂȘte to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
