Description:

The closest route to the road on the southern side. Starts with bouldery moves on a rounded arete. The moves area all lots of fun. Perhaps the best route on the fin in my opinion. you can also TR it by climbing the 5.6 to the right.

4 out of 5 stars holy crapper

It required a few dynos at the start (before the first clip), reach right of the first bolt to get a stable position for clipping, or skip to the second bolt just 4 feet above.

It is extremely pumpy and was impossible for me after 3 days of climbing and being completely exhaused. Must return.
