Description 

Foggy Mountain Fin:

one of the absolute best v0s in the park...

Walk from the parking lot, passing the upper lookout and walk up the stone steps. pass the room which has "tiger striped" quartzite streaks, and then pass the round, bulbous Hive Boulder directly below the room. continue down the trail, passing some smaller, but not climbable stone slabs on the right, one of which has the yellow Listening Rock Trail blaze painted on it...

Just shortly after the Hive Boulder (a matter of yards) and the yellow blaze slab, you will walk upon a very small, overhanging blade that is extended toward you. it will be on your left, and and just off the trail. this problem sit starts at the bottom right of the blade on crimpy finger jugs with good feet, and follows the thin lip/edge/blade arete to the top point of the fin where you top out.

Sit Start at the bottom right corner of the Fin/Blade on a set of jug/crimpy edges. stand up off of decent feet and fall back into the corner/edge/lip of the blade at the best notch available. continue up and across the lip/edge/corner of the fin to the top most point of the blade where you can gain a great heel hook to the left to press over the lip with a great top-out.
