Classic two pitch splitter with a face start. Easy to AO the bolted start to get to the good stuff. This entry describes the direct start to Bony Fingers.

5 out of 5 stars A0 10b

Aided through the direct face start to get to the sick carck. Though the guide marks the first pitch as having 10b, I thought it was easier than the "5.9" on the last pitch that turns to painful tips.

4 out of 5 stars Definitely the logical choice...

Though it's fairly desperate, this is the better option. You can aid it if you're stumped by the face moves (actually harder for tall people).

4 out of 5 stars Tough start

The start is delicate. A difficult tension move. Especially after my partner blew off one of the main holds.

The start is thin and steep and kinda committing to place your first piece. We broke it into 3 pitches and I would recommend that since it runs around the corner.
