Description 

Fun and interesting 5.9. This is will keep your attention at every bolt. A difficult or pumpy move will allow you to surmount each bolt.

Start just right of Jigsaw on a face laced with jugs. Climb the face until you reach a ledge. Clip the second hidden bolt, sling long, and make a tough move to get onto the ledge. Get into the left facing dihedral, clip the bolt, and figure out the technical moves to get you under the overhanging section. Clip the final bolt and get steep! Fun jugs to the anchors.

Location 

This is the second line on the wall just right on Jigsaw. First line of bolts on the face up the hill.

Protection 

QD's for 4 bolts, one long draw for second bolt. Chains with carabiners for anchors. These carabiners may require occasional replacement, so check for pitting. A 60m or smaller will get you down.

Cleaning the fin on The Fin. The bolts to the left in this photo are for this route. To the right is the bolt line for Wall of Voodoo, which goes to the right on the left-facing wall, then shares the last two bolts with The Fin. The bolt high in the photo and to the right is on Climb With a View.
