Description Suggest change

P1 - Climb a right-facing corner to a face with a single bolt below a roof. Move up and through the roof, follow the hand crack up and around the left side of the formation to a bolted anchor.

P2 - Move around left to a broken ledge. Climb up a finger crack in a left-facing dihedral, encountering several 10+ sections along the way. Half way up the rock is a bit loose, but the pro is decent. Belay at the bolted anchors atop the dihedral.

P3 - Head up broken rock and move left into a short, clean, left-facing dihedral. Climb the finger crack (10+). Continue up the thin crack/flake on the white slab. Belay at the anchors directly right of the double cracks (shares with Yellow Fin).

P4 - Climb the double hand cracks to their end. Continue up through a triangular roof, then up a thin hand crack that parallels the arĂȘte. When the crack runs out, move left to a stance and flake anchor. Can be combined with P3 for a long 180' pitch. Classic!

Variation - After the double cracks make some runout moves up and left to a good stance then climb up through a short, bulging, corner (5.11) to a nice hand crack and belay in the corner. Also classic!

P5 - continue up to the top via easier terrain. (5.8)

Rap the route with a 70m rope.
