Description

A pretty, thin, bolted slab which is pretty thin on a slightly-concave, short face. It is located on the W side of the Finger Flatiron in a small amphitheatre facing SW below & S of the Finger-Box col or just above the western slot between the Finger & Hand on the approach to Mere Wall. It stays in the shade on a summer morn.

It is pictured in Rossiter's Boulder Climbs North guidebook. It is somewhat reminiscent of Prince of Darkness, Eldo or Slabmaster, Fern Canyon.

Move up onto a small shelf. Stretch to clip the first bolt. Short stick clips have been used here. Delicate balance with an emphasis on foot technique bring you to the shallow, monodoigt _bucket_ just R of the second bolt. It is the only _jug._ From here it is thinner. On your L you can try to undercling a couple upside-down edges. The crux can be surmounted L via a wide pinch handhold or R via a small smooth pebble for the foot (if you are taller). Close fitting edging shoes may give you a slight edge.
