Finesse the Mess ascends a highly featured, slightly overhung arete.

Sit start with a left hand pinch and a right hand sidepull at the base of the arete. From there, slap up to another right hand sidepull, knee bar, reach the left hand sidepull, use a right hand edge, gain the lip, and top it out.


It climbs the northwest arete of Gelid.


A few pads at least, there is a rock beneath the problem that creates an uneven surface.
