DescriptionThis is a decent 2-pitch line on the E face of Sharksfin past a large chockstone in a crack system. From near the NE corner of Sharksfin, find an obvious, polished, L-angling ramp.
P1. Use one of at least 2 starts to gain this ramp. Near the top of the ramp, move out right onto the face past an airy move, 5.7, to gain a cramped belay below the crack system.
P2. Jam a steep bit through the crux. Find a good stance. Decipher your next moves around a bit of suspect rock to get another stance below the large chockstone. Pick your exit (I believe I took the easiest one-under the chockstone) and gain the ridge. Cams protect this pitch.
From the top, you can peer down interesting lines up the W face.
To descend, we used a short traverse of the top ridge to the S end of Sharksfin and rapped the SW corner to a ledge which leads to downscrambling under a large boulder and walking terrain.
