DescriptionThe climb has two distinct sections with the lower face being about 5.7 with the most difficult moves coming at the shallow, left-facing corner at the end of the starting ramp. The upper section of the climb is the obvious dihedral, which starts in the slab directly above Monodoigt. Climb through bulging rock on some fun crystals and pockets to get established at the base of the dihedral. A combination of stemming and layback moves gets you to a rest position on the left arete half way up the dihedral. From here, layback the left arete, or stem across when possible to the right arete to reach the top. There are two spots of 9+, 10- climb in the dihedral section. Some of the rock in the upper dihedral is still friable and will clean up with traffic. We did minimal cleaning.
LocationThe route starts about 15ft to the right and around the corner from Thinner on the WSW side of the Finger. The climbing begins on a narrow, left-to-right, rising ramp and continues upwards following the most obvious line aiming for the upper, overhanging dihedral. (A variation is to start on Monodoigt and continue into the upper dihedral).
To get down, break down the toprope anchor and rap off Nude Figures in a Hollow Fruit.
