Though this is not its own route it is worthy to note as its my favorite pitch on this section of rock.... I often climb it after doing The Book of Solemnity (5.10a) or Recompense (5.9)....

Start with the down climb to the right as for Comeau's Finish (5.7) and make the traverse move to the right.... When you gain the crack rather than continuing across the slab head straight up the crack that thins and steepens until you are on an awesome 5.10a finger crack, and if you look down, you will notice that you are way up there, fun fun fun.... There is a root in a hold that folks grab, but there is also a good lock in the same spot.... Mantel the top and bow for the crowd.... You just did the second half of the last pitch of a very long, very hard route, keep it up and you may some day do the whole thing....

I always thought this thing was Comeau's, no wonder I though it was sandbagged hard at 5.7. Damn I feel stupid. Sep 21, 2007
