Description

Airation is a perfect straightforward finger crack. The crux is dealing with the pain of the sharp fingerlocks. This is a great example of 5.11a fingers. Footwork is key as there are many small feet on the face.

Pitch 1: 5.11a follow the picture-perfect, finger crack to a tree with a fixed sling and rings. Most people only do the first pitch.

Pitch 2: Follow the lower angled rock to the top.

Location

Start on a tree-covered ledge just left of the original finish for Thin Air (5.6), which is a leaf filled gully. (Be careful stepping over the gap to the base of the climb...If you slip it's a looooong way down.) From the ledge, find the nicest finger crack. Have fun...

Protection

Cams from thin fingers to wide fingers and some nuts.
