This is an awesome route up towering fin/arete at the far right end of the Pool Wall. Find a nice shady zone and an old mine shaft. The first bolt is at the lip of the shaft. Stem up the huge corner until you need to commit to the right wall. Scamper up past a bolt or two and step into the crux sequence on the edge. It is one of the best routes at the Pool Wall.


This is on the far right end of the Pool Wall.


A dozen draws.
