Description

This is the left of a set of 3 cracks on the West face of Fin City. It is short, sweet, and inviting with some good hand jamming. Tape is nice for those without great technique like me, and the jams are deep so forearms will get a bit scuffed. The start is the crux of the climbing. You can start from the ground with some help from the next crack left or step off the boulder behind and jam. A #0.75 Camalot can be set off this boulder to protect the tricky start. Note, there is a nice lieback rail on the right wall about 1/2 way up. Also, the last few feet of climbing involves standing on & climbing a huge flake, which appears balanced & detached. Beware of using this flake for protection. 1.4 stars.

Location

This is the left of a set of 3 cracks on the West face of Fin City.

Protection

A set of cams plus is nice from Red Alien/TCU size to #4 Camalot. #1 Camalot, a bigger wire, a big Cam, and a red Alien are nice for the belay.
