Description

This is a good climb to get on if your fingers are fat. The first half of the climb is tricky to protect, but lots of fun. From the big ledge half way up, follow the beautiful big fingers crack in a dihedral. Much harder for small fingered folk.

Location

Left to right on the Obscenity wall:
Toadstool is the flared finger crack below the big pine tree.
Red Snapper is the 3 wide cracks below the big pine tree.
Fingering the Avatar is the clean dihedral just a little down canyon from the big pine tree.

Rap to the ground and climb broken rock to get to the dihedral.

Protection

2 each to #2 Camalot, 1 #3 Camalot, extra 0.4 Camalot and 0.5 Camalot size.

I just got on this climb for the 1st time in many years. I had forgotten how good it is, and was surprised that it did not have a speck of chalk (I changed that ;) ) I do not think it deserves PG. The start protected very well with a few small/medium wires + an orange and purple metolious. The start is fun stemming and face climbing in the 10 range. The top is locker fingers to hands. It looks like it will be orange metolius, but it's more like yellow. I placed nothing bigger than 1 camelot. Btw, it's easy to walk over from the base of Sine Wall Jul 7, 2018
