Description

'Crags' slab climbing at its best. Sack-up for this one. "It ain't no sport climb - it's a bolted protected rock climb!" (per Mr. Kimball himself) Stellar slab climbing, edges and pasting.

Start on a network of web-like seams in the middle of the wall, followed by a crux roof sequence.

2-bolt anchor over the roof has been added.  or Scramble over the top and down onto a platform on the SW corner of the Shark Fin.

Extra credit: while there climb the short, 5-bolt, but sweet Yellow Butterfly (5.9+) on Shark Fin.

Walk off, down around to the left (north) to return to the base in a counterclockwise hike. Totally worth the walk.

Location

This tall gray wall sits directly uphill from Woodstone, on the right (south) side of Half & Half Crag. the route is capped by a small roof at 120'.

Protection

2 pins and 8 bolts PLUS take some small wire-nuts, and C3s/Aliens up to #0.75 BD.
