Mark Oveson nears the notch - Sharks Fin South Rou...
In 2001, this route (and the entire Mallory Cave Area) was closed April 1 to Oct. 1.
This route ascends a knobby chimney just south of the entrance to Mallory Cave. Grab a chockstone to enter the chimney (crux), then squeeze up and then out of the chimney (lots of face holds). Continue up to the notch between the Hand and Shark's Fin. This can be made harder by moving right onto the east face of the Shark's Fin (recommended), rather than climbing the gully itself. At the notch, scramble north and join the top of the North Side route to reach the summit (4th class).
Standard Flatiron rack.

The bottom of this route is now impossible due to fence over the cave unless there was some way to climb the gate, but upon inspection, it did not seem workable. Plus it freaks out the tourists to see somebody assaulting the gates....
