The "Opportunist" slips in on another FA...


This is a very good face route. It is steep, the rock is Queen Mtn. varnish and the pro is good. There is a 2 bolt anchor on top. Rap the route.


Trad bolted with 5 bolts

Approach this small pillar as you would Olympic Dome. Just past the point where you leave the main wash, and head over a small rise into a smaller wash, the Shark Fin will be located on your left (west), just before the point where you begin scrambling up boulders to the base of Olympic Dome. Didn't find the rock to be nearly as good as on Olympic Dome and other noteworthy crags. 2 of 5 stars.

Rock quality detracts as noted by Randy. DE love those stamped hangers, spacing is Old Skool! 2 of 5.
