Description

Boldfingers is a bad-ass route on great rock- classic NC hard trad. The climbing up to the crux is pumpy and fun, and the crux seam requires doing hard moves on small but good gear. While somewhat contrived, as there is an obvious weakness to the right, the direct start is also really cool (unprotected highball v4 boulder problem to a stance). Either way you do it, the route is killer.

Location

The route is just to the left of Static Klingon and Black Planet. It's the obvious crack system heading up the steep golden wall.

Protection

small cams up through a number 1 camalot with nuts (bring micros!) There is a bomber two-bolt anchor at the top.
