4 out of 5 stars Finally

Fun climb. The view of the Sierra crest and Whitney when you top out is not to be missed. Took a few minutes to psych up for the first move onto the climb...

Pretty tough for 5.7, not good for leaders at their limit.

4 out of 5 stars Shark's Fin Arete

The first move to get on the wall may be the crux. Loose for the first ~15 feet, solid after that. Great view after topping out. Makes for great postcard photo w/ Mt. Whitney in the background.
