This is a route ascending a fun, crack on the S side of the West face of this crag. The name is derived from the Rossiter & Gillett guides. The climb faces West, so it is cool in the mornings. The climbing is wide hands with a bit of a face climbing crux. It seemed best to be left side in. Tape was helpful for non-Peter Croft-like crack climbers. The mellow start was nice compared with the starts for Kids on Coffee & Out of Time.

To descend, move to the next slot North and downclimb into a chimney.


It is the right-most of the obvious cracks between the fins at Fin City.


Hands to fist sized cams are useful. #1-#4 Camalots, doubles, perhaps.

This is another short stout route on the Fins that's worth doing if you're in the area. It felt very Vedauwooesque. Jun 23, 2009

I thought this was actually a very good route, with several cruxes, and interesting climbing. It would be classic if it were just a bit longer! Two and a half stars. Sep 9, 2013
