A massive sharp tipped "fin" with a very broad base sits on a solid perch about 3/4 of the way up the line.

Pitch #1: Really fun lay backing or hand jams up a wide crack (plenty of smaller protection options on both sides) leads to the scary looking fin. It would not even budge for me...I can't really envision it leaving its perch, but it is still quite daunting and exciting to climb past it. You can completely avoid it by climbing thin fun moves to the right. A few more face moves up lichen splattered rock leads to a two-bolt belay. 5.8, 20m.

Rappel the route. Consider rappelling to the left of the Fin if you get the same concerns as we did? I know I will do this route again and again.


This is located about 2m to the right of the Fret ArĂȘte. A bolted belay allows descending the route.

Be careful in the boulder fields ascending or descending and keep your time passing through the girl scout camp to a minimum, please!


Set of Camalots and Nuts. Don't forget to bring maybe doubles on #4 Camalots? One is probably enough for most.

My rack for this route was an orange tcu, a #.5, a #3 and a #4. Felt like plenty but the #4 was nice to have. Jul 12, 2014
Cool route, moves seemed pretty easy for 5.8 granite. Great protection abound, small or large. Aug 14, 2016
