This is good but not amazing. No way is it 5.12. The traverse takes small finger size piece. The patina is less than solid, had a sizable piece break off. Aug 25, 2014

This formation isn't on the Fenceline Spire/Rock, per se (which is due east of the Taco)? Might be called Sharks Fin (according to the Zone 2 info I have). Cheers! Jul 5, 2006
