Description

Hand/fist crack with lots of other features around it. A huge ledge halfway (just after pulling the crux?) for a rest. Come out and left on to the face to finish, toward the rap station.

Some detached blocks on this thing; some that seem chocked pretty well, others that are very loose...be careful.

Location

Start at the obvious, wide-looking, inside corner crack that graces the east face of the Sharksfin. Can be contrived to get to this area (two main ways to approach). Read up on The Crags, and be open to exploring the potential of this area as you approach.

Protection

Great pro, lots of ways to protect it. Standard rack. I used to the #1BD, but some may find up to the #3BD useful. Two good pins at the top to string from as part of your anchor system, but they look old. To be safe back them up.
