To get to Cutfinger Rock, walk past the Jenny Lake ranger station along a gravel path. When you reach the campground, connect with the paved bike path(labelled "old road" on the hand drawn topo), and continue north for a couple hundred yards. Cutfinger will be the first large boulder on the left side, just off the bike trail.
Perhaps John Gill can best describe the boulder...
From Gill's website:
'In the beginning there was nothing. Then the old timers spotted Cut-finger Rock and Teton bouldering was born. Dick Emerson,one of the pioneers, forced a route up the immense Marmolada-like south wall, which to this day is called Cut-finger Crack, even though the number of cut fingers has been reduced drastically due to a breaking off of the guillotine-like hold in 1958. It has become the most popular boulder due to its proximity to the road, its clean appearance, and its wide range of difficulty. It is a good boulder. Virtually every hold has been eliminated at some time or other, so the boulder has an infinite number of combinations. Warning: Do not be misled by its safe girl-like appearance. It has already been the scene of several accidents,i.e., Leighton’s Folly of 1958'
