1) Climb gully, stepping up and left at it's top to gain the top of a small buttress where you'll find a fixed anchor.
2) Climb up slope on the fin clipping bolts to gain Chicken Ledge at the top (fixed anchor). Lots of climbers try to cross the last very exposed bit of Chicken Ledge by walking. Give it a go!
3) Continue up the arete of the fin, clipping the occasional bolt, to the top. A short crack move will be found at the top. You might want a medium sized cam for that.
Descent: Rappel (double rope) down the southern side of the formation back to the ground off the south face.
The route starts downhill on the southeastern corner in a gully between "The Thumb" and the main part of the fin.
