Description [Edit]

Crux is after the second bolt. It gets tricky getting up from the ledge to reach the third bolt. You stray from the bolts here and there, but the line always comes back for a clip. Don't be afraid to give it a reach around ;-)

Location [Edit]

Only route on The Finger. East facing side of the spire.

Protection [Edit]

4 bolts, chain anchors

fun route - mostly because of the setting. If setting this up as a toprope, make sure to leave the last draw in as a directional - even with the directional, you're looking at a bit of a spinny pendulum if you go up the right side rather than the somewhat blank center. Feb 14, 2012

Rock quality is really bad on the top. Worth climbing just because of the formation though. Apr 21, 2016

Agree rock quality on top is slightly chossy. I would rate it as a classic except for this. Definitely climb while in the area. May 19, 2016
