Description

Around on the East side of Echo Rock, down low, is a straight, thin, attractive crack. It's real short. This is Finger Food.Vogel's guide says 10a, but really more like 5.8.You can scramble off the back.

Protection

good pro; put first piece high. Take some big cams for the anchor.

I agree. Bouldering this crack is the only way to get the whole value. To rope up would mean being disappointed with the route's short length. But as a boulder problem it is plenty exciting. Harder/awkward moves right out of the sand, followed by slower paced, considerate climbing above where the only way to blow it is to be careless. But if you plan on climbing this crack carelessly, tie in. Feb 21, 2013

A boulder problem crux down low to mostly face climbing with a few jams thrown in for good measure. If leading wires work great and nothing larger than 0.5" should be needed; the anchor takes 2.5" to 3" cams just back from the lip. Apr 1, 2012

I'd say 10a. Boulder this thing, it protects well enough with a pad, and looks higher than it "really" is. May 2, 2010

Crux is only a couple moves off the ground, might as well boulder it. It's not 5.8, though. Nov 9, 2008

Almost a boulder problem. One of two routes in the park with the name "Finger Food". Fairly cool name wasted on this shorty. Feb 25, 2004
