Max trying to flash 3-Finger Pocket.


This is one of the cooler climbs at Sailing Hawks. The three finger pocket is far right in the picture while other unknown routes twist left.

Start from a sit down and left of the prow and pocket. Move up and right to the pocket and continue up the prow to the top.


This problem is the prow at the right end of the main 45 degree face of the Petrified Boulder, after the prow the wall stays steep but not as steep.


1-2 crash pads.

I am curious if taller people find this problem more difficult? I sure had trouble with it.
