Going for the lip on "the fin"

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Down on the beach area of Barney's Rubble. This squat little boulder features a curving polished Fin of nice granite. Start as low as possible (sand fluctuates as well as water in the landing area) squeezing with hands and feet on the Fin. A cool knob and more squeezing lead up to cool holds and a fun rock over move to top out. Crux is getting off the ground and up to better holds and footholds that allow you to pop to a good hold below the lip.

Location 

Lower Barney's rubble, on the bank of Icicle creek. Idyllic setting.

Protection 

1-2 pads. During high water a pad platform might be needed. during high sand volumes the low start may be impossible with a pad under you?
