BETA PHOTO: Shark Fin

Description 

Excellent climbing up some of the best rock at main face. Somehow didn't make the guidebook. Start on ledge that is accessed by hopping along rocks past Last Chance. Can only be accessed at low tide, but the route does not seep like the other routes at this end of the face.

The climb traverses off the ledge on a horizontal crack then up a thin crack to a small roof. Traverse under this roof then up the obvious corner/flake feature. Climb this feature until easier flakes are reached, then straight up to the shark fin. Step left to a crack once standing on the fin, then climb this crack to a big grassy ledge (belay). Easy 5th class leads up to the east coast trail past here, roping up is optional.

Location 

Right of Garden of Eden at the far right end of main face. Goes up to an obvious protruding "Shark Fin"

Protection 

Double set of cams to #1 Camalot, 1x #2 camalot, nothing larger needed. Lots of large nuts, Ballnuts very useful.

Gear Anchor.
