Description

Middle Finger is a ridge of rock that runs north-south. The shorter east face is considered the "backside", whereas the west face is Middle Finger Wall proper. Topropes can be set up from bolts at the top, by carefully scrambling up the ridge from the north end.

Leaders should beware, as the easy routes on this wall have portions of chossy rock.

Getting There

From the summit trail, take the same fork as for the Fortress area. Instead of descending into the Fortress area, continue on the trail a short way further to another descent that winds to the base of the east face of the Middle Finger (the "backside").

There is also a steep, rocky gully that leads down from the north end of Middle Finger backside toward the vicinity of Two Pitch Wall.
