Description Suggest change

The Fin Wall is on your left when facing the Broken Tooth wall. When observing the wall from the Bridger Jack area, you can see why this jutting long rock peninsula is called the Fin Wall. There are also established routes on the north side of the Fin Wall feature, and this is called the Public Service Wall. The routes at the Fin Wall are spread out over the entire length of the wall. If you pick an area (left, middle or right), there should be enough climbs to keep you busy without walking around too much. The crag gets afternoon shade. The left side of the wall is more broken with lots of pillars and less of the long "perfect" walls, however, the climbing is still excellent and abundant. After hiking up from the parking area, an area classic is just above the trail: Nagasaki.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive 1.5 miles past the Beef Basin turnoff. A dirt road leads to the right towards the Broken Tooth wall. The parking for Broken Tooth and the Fin Wall is the same, but separate trails lead off to the cliffs. This area is the next climbing area on the right after the Cat Wall.
