Description

A very easy but relatively entertaining 3 pitch romp.

P1: 5.7. 3 clips then EZ terrain up a crack/face to chains on the left.

P2: 5.7+. Up the obvious bolt line starting with a pin. Thought the crux of the route was here not on P1 as the Granite Guide suggests.
Head directly up to the roof and place a directional for your follower then walk right to chains.

P3: 5.6. Link a clusterfest of chicken heads via clips until a move left lands you in a crack and then up to chains.

Not sure you can link any pitches due to the nature of P2.

Location

This little rig is right on the trail to the Fin approach. Hopskotch up on chicken heads. The first 3 bolts are obvious and closely spaced on a slab facing west.

Getting off the bastard:
1. Double rope rap from top of P3 to top anchor of Wasatch Harlem, then a 35m rap to the dirt (i.e. with a 70m).
2. 3 single raps with a 70m
3. I suppose you could descend the same way you got up here with three 60m raps, but that'd be relatively annoying.

Protection

Mixed. Singles to #3. Nothing micro needed. Well protected the whole way. Chains at each belay.
