This is a GREAT route. Do not miss this one. You can pack in a full day - by climbing the great group of routes in The Alcove formed by Woodstone and Half & Half Crag separation.
This first pitch is .10a and finishes with a bolted anchor. Bring a light rack even for the first pitch (include a #3 BD for the top move, unless you have big hands) = this pitch is a fat 3 stars!
Climb 'Rouge Element' on Half & Half Crag; walk off the top. Then climb Yellow Butterfly on the south end of the Sharksfin and circle around Sharksfin counterclockwise. Many choices lay on its uphill east face. Continue counterclockwise, down, and around, and pluck this beauty before returning to your stash.
