Description

Climb the finger crack, step left to another thin crack for a few feet, and then traverse back right to a third crack which leads to the first bolt at the roof. Commit to some awkward moves in order to gain the roof and pass the first bolt (crux), then face climb past 2 more bolts to gain the main central crack on the upper face. Follow this easy crack (fingers and hands) to the top and belay from the fixed anchor by the bush.

Location

Begin in a finger crack just left of an obvious bush at the base of the main face of the Fashion Slab. Descend via a double rope rappel or rappel to the mid anchor on Le Tigre and then rap again with a single rope.

Protection

3 bolts, gear to 3". Fixed ring anchor at the top.

Seems like people are finding the crux on this one funky, awkward, and harder than Blue Steel. Upgrading to 10c. Apr 3, 2015
