Description:

Classic airy, scary route that climbs the thin spine (18" at it's narrowest) of this 140' fin. Begin by making sandy moves (5.7) up to and onto the spine. Follow the spine up to a flat belay stance about 100' up. Continue up the last 40' (5.6) to the summit ridge. Straddle and belay. Can lead the whole thing on one 60m rope, but must have two ropes for the rappel.
