Middle Finger Wall Connect The Cracks (5.5) trad ...

Description 

This route is on the TOPO of the Kelley Guide as a (5.5) but no name is listed. The name is temporary until the original name is found out.

Same start as Rerouted but instead of following the crack system cliff right at the halfway point, you step onto a face cliff left under a right facing flake.

This is definetly the crux. The climbing is easy, the gear is not straight forward. Trying to find the deceptive gear options can be mental and pumpy. Above the right facing flake is a huge ledge with awesome protection near by.

The climbing continues to be physically easy and the protection become a little more obivious. A great warm-up route.

I liked this route a lot more than THE BALCONY.

Location 

Cliff left of THE BALCONY(5.5)

Located in the center of Middle Finger Wall.

Protection 

Standard Trad Rack - Protects great most of the way until you reach the crux. Easy climbing deceptive gear at the crux. Protects well after the crux.

Natural Anchor
