The Fang is a small pinnacle to the right of "Bolee Gold".
Boulder up onto the ramp of "Bolee Gold", then climb a 5.9 finger crack, and enter a chimney, forming the left side of the pinnacle.
Rappel from bolts or continue up "Harding's Chimney".


Pro to 2".

The crux is working up the short crack at the start. Solid finger locks lead to a couple insecure pods. Jam those real good , try to get a toe in the thin crack , and reach high for a solid hand jam . The short chimney is fun and you make an airy exit onto easy face climbing up to the anchor.

You can TR various bolted routes from the anchor.

It is a fun climb.

Climbed it today, a bat lives in there. Heard strange noises, cross-referenced with youtube, confirmed the noises i heard squeaking at me were a bat.

Super fun route. No sighting of the bat, but I suspect he lives in the 4" crack in the back of the chimney...
