Dain sending at Cal Dome

Description 

Fine Line is a quality route that follows a beefy dike straight up the middle of Totally Buzzed Pinnacle.

The crux comes low, between the first and second bolts, as you negotiate a left-facing overlap. Thin underclinging, body tension and creative use of the available features help unlock this fun, tricky start.

Pull onto a ledge and engage the prominent dike that protrudes several inches from the wall. Pinch and layback up the awesome feature, clip bolts when you get them and enjoy the ride!

Location 

Fine Line is located on the Totally Buzzed Pinnacle in the Lost World area - east and uphill of Hourglass Buttress. Hike to the base of Sands of Time/Silk Road. Continue left (east) and uphill along the base of Cal Dome. Pass Hyena Arch and Rainbow Arch. When you approach the third arch begin looking for the routes. They're just uphill and beyond a large detached flake that forms a cave/walk-through at the base of the dome. Look for a prominent left-facing corner and a bolted dike on the face directly to the left. This is Totally Buzzed Pinnacle. Fine Line follows the 4-5" dike on the face.

~45-60 minutes from the road.
