Description

Mostly low-angle but with a faintly old-school, alpine-ish feel. Some people won't like it at all. But my partner and I thought it was reasonably fun.

Start by chimneying up to a high bolt. Stem across the chimney and start heading up. Sometimes you are fully on the Fin, sometimes you are stemmed across to the main crag. Mostly easy but fun, but has a couple of cruxy sections that may surprise you.

It's a bit grainy yet. I snapped a foothold that almost pitched me. And I'd like to test a couple of the features with a hammer. The bolting is just a touch sparse and there are a couple of places where a fall would not be pretty. It's fun, but be careful.

Location

Name tells all, or look at the topo drawing.

Protection

Bolts and leaver biners. Will be Mussys soon.

The stemming on this route is grin inducing. While I would have to look at it again to be confirm, falling while pulling the featured lip might be ugly due to the low angle climbing below. Jun 7, 2015
