DescriptionThis is a clean slab pitch on beautiful rock that offers a more challenging variation to Fingertrip or Crimes of Passion. The pitch begins from the 2-bolt anchor at the top of Crimes of Passion's first pitch.
This 2-bolt anchor can also be reached via Fingertrip by following the left-slanting crack at the top of the first pitch, then face climbing up and left a bit higher.
From the 2-bolt belay anchor make a 5.9 move up to a bolt (Crimes of Passion goes straight up from this bolt), then climb up and left past 2 more bolts. Move up and right to a fourth bolt and the crux (10b).
A bit higher you'll reach the start of the Fingertrip Arch (optional belay here, 2-3 inch gear). From here you can continue up Fingertrip or Crimes of Passion.
