Description 

This is the fourth line on Dorsal Fin (see beta photo). It starts in the first prominent dihedral. Follow the dihedral up, placing pro until you get to a small roof. Set some pro and then up and over you go. Its still very dirty. Be careful for loose rock. Be smart about placing the pro under the roof (check it). We cleared most the loose stuff; but you never know!! Roof is the crux. Keep going until you reach a large ledge just below the top of the fin. Descent is either walk off the fin (climber right) or set up a rappel.

Protection 

Standard rack. No bolts, no anchors on top.
