Description [Suggest Change]

A left-leaning hand to fingers crack in the narrow upper corridor between Razorburn and Close Shave. It has a resident rat, and some debris may need to by cleaned out as this probably rarely sees traffic. Decent moves on good stone. Use anchor on Close Shave.

This one isn't in the guidebooks, so I'm unaware of FA history or any other name for it. I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear of earlier ascents, post it up if you know more...

Location [Suggest Change]

On west face of upper fin out of narrow corridor that separates top of lower fin (with S-Crack) from upper fin.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Gear to #2 or #3, should be obvious from ground. Chains.
