Description 

Kinda silly but kinda cool, Finagle is a guilty pleasure, like 'Slow Ride'.

Yard along the lip of the big roof on jugs until you can pull up and get a stance. Climb a short crack until it fades, and then step left to the arete across a scoop. Finish up in excellent position on the arete to a ledge with a little pine and some new ringbolts, or cruise to the top to milk it a while longer. Bitchen!


Location 

Look for a big, low roof left of a perfect orange corner, with a bent pine at the start.


Protection 

Smaller. Long runners.

The moves at the bottom are great. The route goes downhill from there...

If you don't step left to the arete and instead follow the crack system, you get a very interesting (thin) climb. I was told this is the "direct" variation and goes at 5.9+-5.10.

Pretty sure the variation you're referring to is called My Lost China Doll in the Dixie Cragger's Atlas. It's not included in the new Robinson guide.
