Description

The main feature of the east face of Delta Dome is a huge, mostly-detached fin. The right edge (north side) of the fin leans against the dome to form a steep open book with an offwidth/jam-crack/chimney at the intersection. Tony bolted this feature even though half of it could be protected by traditional means. Whatever. It's pretty fun, and is not your typical slabby Mt Lemmon 5.10.

Location

Extreme north edge of East Fin.

A unique route that forces movement outside the standard face climbing repertoire. Aug 3, 2015
