Description

The name on the plaque is Fletcher, although Bloom's guidebook refers to this as 'The Feltcher.' But why would anyone name a good route like that?

Climb to a corner and protect it, then climb into a band of questionable rock. Carefully place a 3" cam (or so) in a solid horizontal, then move up a thin crack, protecting that, and adding slings on the right. GO left out and up a flake (stemming crux) and left out the top of a small roof to a crack. Traverse back right (balance crux) and follow the thin hands crack and corner to the top as it widens (enduro crux).

Location

Just left of where the trail reaches the SE face of the Fin, you will encounter an obvious crack with a broken corner at the bottom and a weird flake (juts out left) guarding the exit of that section to the good crack. the route is well marked by a plaque.

Protection

Bloom's book is misleading. It suggests heavy 1.5" cams and then a few 2.5" 's. Whereas in fact, you need some 2"s for sure. Perhaps he equivocated .75 camalots (green) as 1.5" cams?
Take cams from your smallest cam to .75" (1 each), a 3" cam for the horizontal before the bad rock, then a few 1" and maybe 4X each 1.5 and 2" cams. Then a few 2.5's for the top section.
