This climbs a 15-20 foot finger crack through a small roof. It is steeper than it looks. This is a good route to give your feet a break from all the slab climbing. Head West to gain the main trail.


Hike west past the Lower Infirmary Slabs, then cut right. It is located directly above Acts of Contrition.


A few finger-sized cams. I used a #3 Camalot to protect the roof move.

Short and fun, the initial jams are spot on, I used a #2 c4 for the crux, not much else. Give it go, if you're in the area.
