DescriptionFar left side of Spiderman Buttress, about 200 feet up the loose sandy slope. An initial 5.5 R trad line or a much more recommended short 5.9 sport line with 4 bolts (Stiff Little Fingers), lead to a big ledge and the start of Captain Fingers. Captain Fingers starts from the ledge with 25 feet of strenuous finger crack and eases into a finger sized corner crack and then easier low angle cracks to a two bolt anchor with no hangers. We left two beaners to rap off with though. Apparently a walk off is possible as the route used to top out on the ledge above the current anchor.
LocationFar left side of Spiderman Buttress, about 200 feet up the sandy loose slope. Noticeable jagged finger crack that starts above a big ledge about 50 feet off the ground.
We did a single rappel with a 70 meter rope from the top anchor and made it down easy. A 60 might work for one rap from the top anchor, but definitely tie some knots in the ends of the rope!!
