Description

Overhanging finger and hand crack in a narrowing dihedral. There are no individual hard moves, but it's very steep and sustained the whole way. This is a great route with good rock, but it needs to be climbed a few more times to clean up a little. Pumpy! Note: FFA was done with pre-placed gear - this route still awaits a pure, ground up ascent while placing the gear.

Location

From the Dorsal Fin/Dark Horse area, traverse around the Fin to the east. Climb a long scrambly pitch up and right, starting with a chicken head crack, and finishing with some low angle slab climbing on a ramp. Belay at the end of this ramp, and the crack will be obvious.

Protection

Set of TCUs, double set of cams from a .3 C4 to a #2 C4. Lower/rap from a 2 bolt anchor at the top of the dihedral.
