This is a strong one-star, a good route to do if you are in the area, perhaps having ticked the classic North Face, and want to get in another short route on Sharksfin. The crux is brief, well-protected stemming, and probably a tad easy for the grade unless you are short.

Identify a large, left-facing corner (currently with a fixed pin) in the middle of the east face, and climb it. Finish up steep, fun, but easier rock and then traverse left to the bolted anchor (the bolted route just left also has at least two bolts that are very easily clippable from this route!), or continue to the top.


Bring small to medium friends and a set of stoppers.
