Description

V3 is a fun and long (~140 feet) pitch that is great for a trad leader trying to get comfortable moving above gear. This climb ascends the dihedral between fin 3 and 4. Scramble up to the top of the large block, and then continue up the clean V dihedral. About halfway up, a 5.9 finger crack moves left out onto the face for 20 feet before returning to the route. Also, at about the beginning of this variation lies a large loose block on this left face - be careful not to dislodge it! The route is long, so make sure to bring enough quick draws and gear to properly protect it.

Per T G: the historical, large block that used to be 2/3 of the way up the climb was trundled on June 10, 2019 by Steve Levin, Mike McHugh from the park, and members of ACE.
