Located directly under Dummy's Delight, Ladyfingers climbs patina flakes left to right to a shared finish with it. Begin by bouldering up the left side of Lucky Lady. From the base of the buttress the route looks quite easy, and almost unappealing, as it never seems to get that high off the gully.

It is not as easy as it looks, however, and for all its positive edges, manages to require technical footwork. As expected from Gaines, a quality route plucked from plain sight.


Six bolts. Small cam to protect follower. Gear anchor from thin to #1 Camalot.

Good climbing and better than appearances suggest make this another worthy tick for the area. Easy descent by walking right and rapping off Lucky Lady. Two or three stars out of five. Feb 9, 2004
I love this route. something really appealing about traversing over the deep cravass on small edges. the moves are gymnastic and fun. backstepping and mantels on patina plates. dig it! Aug 6, 2005

A well protected fun route, with some traversing involved. Well worth an ascent if in the area but not 5.10b IMHO, easier I think. Oct 10, 2009

This route was great. Don't know why there are all the low ratings here. I thought it was like a concentrated version of loose lady. All the steep edging moves, sustained, high steps. Great route. one of my favorite leads in a long time. Dec 21, 2009

Great fun! Bolts are in all the right places. We rapped off Loose Lady (a 60m is sufficient to get back to the block at the start of Dummies Delight).

As for the grade, it seems about like P1 of Solid Gold (but far more comfortable on the fingertips, and not runout!) but not as long. A smidge easier than the crux of Poodles are People Too. So 10a -ish. Dec 26, 2018
