  • Description 

    Directly underneath the Shark Fin, this climb keeps you completely covered. Head up lots of meandering cracks to a horizontal. Follow the horizontal to the right and take one of two finishes; backwards onto a high block, then up the face to the top, or up the wide crack to the left and pull the roof.
