Description

The North face and Arete of Fin I sport a few nice lines- all three have cool moves on solid rock.

There is a sizable tree in the corner between fins one and two. Climb 5.0 up to that and sling it with a long sling or cordalette to set up a belay. Climb up and right to a bolt (shared with Ichiban Arete) and then veer left to an independent line of bolts. Near the top, the line moves out right to hit the arete. The real crux comes up high, and is fighting off pump, as none of the individual moves are terribly hard. The moves most likely to spill the leader involve 2-finger 1/4 pad crimpers and foot-smears.

It seems to me that all of the bolted lines at Cadilac Crag are a little soft, with this line being no exception if measured by the individual moves, but the sustenance is the problem...

Protection

A set of quickdraws and one long sling.
