This enjoyable route starts 15 feet to the right of the NW corner of the rock.

P1: Start in a finger crack (gear) and follow 4-5 bolts through a bulge (5.10). Angle right to a 3" crack, which leads to a two bolt anchor.

P2: Head up the finger crack to the right. Jams and face moves (5.10) lead to a small ledge with a bolt. Continue up steep 5.8 climbing to a ledge on the left with a 2 bolt anchor.

P3: Head up moderate cracks to the summit.


The route starts on the northwest corner....


Gear to #3 with emphasis on the smaller stuff....

This is a GREAT route. Do not miss this one. You can pack in a full day - by climbing the great group of routes in The Alcove formed by Woodstone and Half & Half Crag separation.

This first pitch is .10a and finishes with a bolted anchor. Bring a light rack even for the first pitch (include a #3 BD for the top move, unless you have big hands) = this pitch is a fat 3 stars!

Climb 'Rouge Element' on Half & Half Crag; walk off the top. Then climb Yellow Butterfly on the south end of the Sharksfin and circle around Sharksfin counterclockwise. Many choices lay on its uphill east face. Continue counterclockwise, down, and around, and pluck this beauty before returning to your stash. Jul 24, 2010
