Description

A brilliant sport route on the overhanging side of the Shark's Fin. A burly move gets you off the ground - and shorter climbers might find this to be the crux. From here clip a few bolts on easier terrain before the crux at mid-level. Several different options exist for this super thin stretch of beautiful patina. Engaging 11+/12- climbing leads you to the chains from there.

Bolted by Mike Spaulding a few years back, I finished this project at the 2013 Idaho Mountain Festival. A great route.

Location

On the steep, shady side of the Shark's Fin - facing the comp wall. It's right off the trail - hard to miss.

Protection

Be sure to bring your extra skin. The crux is very thin and will destroy all the skin you have.
While it may be short this thing packs a ton of amazing climbing in it from the start to the chains. A must do for the grade Oct 8, 2013
