Description:

This thin slab climb is runout but possibly my favorite climb in Tuolumne. (I'm a chick, we dig the thin edges, man). Climb up through glacial polish and over a roof. Same anchor as Alimony cracks which makes it a nice double-rope toprope for the weak at hear leaders (like me). Maculated [There's a three-bolt direct start to the right (.10b) that meets the regular route at the fourth bolt. Thinner, more continuous. JV]

Fun! Fun! Fun! Thin slab climbing with just barely-there feet. After climbing Alimony Crack, we set a rope on this climb.

Left start, then move right. Right start is Fingertips Direct .10b.

Fun little route, and area, but lacks depth. Repeated in 1993 with the direct (.10b) variation. Worth doing.
