Starting just right of Park's Highway, behind a spruce tree, climb up shallow grooves and cracks directly to the base of the obvious offwidth crack. Protect this using a medium cam in a secondary crack inside the right edge of the OW. Pull the short OW roof using your best wide technique (also possible to lieback the deep secondary crack) to the lower angle squeeze chimney above. Exit out left under the summit block to an anchor shared with Park's Highway.


Socks, long pants + long sleeves. Gear to 3" (optional 6" piece if you're willing to carry it this far), gear anchor + 1/4" bolt. Rap from slings, downclimb off the back side, or scramble to the bolted anchor atop The Fin and rappel from there.
