Description 

Stink Finger climbs a black slab to a tan buttress of excellent rock. The buttress is ascended via a tricky flared corner with a distinct crux.

Begin directly by overcoming a slight bulge on sharp crimps, or cheat into the line up slabby rock to the left. Gain a small ledge, then head up on excellent tan stone reminiscent of Sand Gulch. A mix of gastons & shallow pockets lead to a large hanging block in the corner and a good shake. Mantel onto the block, then crux your way left to another smaller block. Continue on easier though never trivial terrain to the anchor.


Location 

This route is located on the tan buttress immediately right of "Kinesthesia". It is the next route left of "Punjabi", downhill and around the corner to the left. This route is the only line in the vicinity that begins directly from the main trail.


Protection 

Bolts to 2 BA. Stick clip recommended.

Last few Shelf guides have Punjabi and Stinkfinger swapped. The left one is Pujnabi, 11a/b, the right one is Stinkfinger, 11c/d.
