Get ready for some serious stemming on this beast.


A short, sustained dihedral that requires little strength but lots of technique.


This route is located on the east face of South Fin. It is on the right-hand side.


1 Bolt, Gear To #1 Camalot, Chains.

The anchors are accessible for top roping.

I'd never even heard of this route before yesterday, but it's an absolute (stem) gem! Definitely recommend rapping in.
