There are climbs on both sides of the fin, allowing for sun or shade as desired. For climbs on the east face, approach as described below, and continue on around the south end of the fin.
A high concentration of two and three-star climbs make this an especially desirable destination.
Driving up the Catalina Highway, park at Windy Point (mp 14.3). From the parking lot at the overlook walk past the outhouses and proceed down the obvious trail.
Hike this trail out the ridge away from the highway. In a couple hundred yards the trail drops slightly below the ridgeline to the right.
Continuing down this trail, you'll approach Nancy's Thumb, a large pinnacle with an obvious crack on its north side. The base of South Fin climbs are accessed by descending the steep gully just below Nancy's Thumb. The climbs are on the left-hand wall as you descend (the right-hand wall is North Fin). Allow five minutes for the approach.
