Description

Some would say it's the best problem at the Happies. Find the fin of rock jutting out of the west rim at a gnarly attitude just above 'Hair Trigger' and near 'Work is a Four Letter Word'.

Start low and climb out the steep arete to a gripping lip encounter which requires you to control a swing and your thoughts about the landing zone.

Protection

Several pads and alert spotters make it not so bad. It's not really a highball, but it has caused a few injuries.
