Overview of the whole route


Start on a fun rail deadpoint up to the right on decent features. Tricky foot placements lead to easier climbing and a good rest. From there traverse left and lunge for a good finger crack. More foot trickery unlocks the moves for getting around a large block. Scramble up the block and work through a 5.9 finger crack move to the arrete. Climb the arrete and enjoy the exposure and view. The last mantle is made easier if you locate the pocket to place your foot in.


This route is just up canyon from shark fin. You will notice the bolt line on your right as you walk up the canyon. It starts on the rail above large broken blocks. You can rappel down off of the ring with a 60 meter rope.


8 bolts protect this route. Scrambling up the block is runout. It is possible to protect this with a 2 BD cam. Otherwise just run it out. 1 fixed ring at the top and 1 bolt. for anchors.
