Description

This is a good face route that climbs thin edges through a bulge. The route is pretty sustained 5.9, with one crux at the fourth piton, involving tricky and thin footwork. This fourth piton is a bit difficult to clip for shorter climbers. It is definitely much harder route than Son of Tidrick's or Place in the Sun.

Location

This route is located on the Finger Face, just left of Son of Tidrick's. Climb the Tourist Gully and belay from the third large eyebolt. From here, you step down a bit, then traverse right about 20 feet to reach the first ring-angle piton.

Protection

5 drilled pitons. 2 pin anchor.

Fantastic, thin, sustained route! If you like Place in the Sun, this is the next level, and all the pins are exactly where they need to be. Mar 6, 2011
