Follow flakes and slabs up and slightly left to the first button head bolt. After a move or two you can fish in some small gear (it was a C3 of some variety if I remember correctly). From there move up to the second button head and move up and right (crux) to a good stance. Clip the 3rd button head and slab climb up and left to another flake where you can place a piece, move up to the last button head followed by another couple 5.8 moves to the summit slings. The moves to the summit feel exposed to this weenie climber, maybe because it feels like it kicks back a bit and you are a little ways above your last "bolt".

I'm not sure how much this thing gets climbed but you would likely want to bring some slings to wrap around the summit just in case they need to be replaced.


Located on the south east face of the Moving Finger formation.


4 old button head bolts and a few small cams.
