Description 

Climb a crack up and right through some rotten sections of rock until it runs out. Place a thin pin or two. Clip a bolt and free out of your aiders 8' to the summit!

Anchor bolts are ten feet east of the top out because the rock at the top out was hollow.


Location 

Finish Line is a fin located West of Red Rocket Tower. The route, 'If You Ain't First, You're Last' starts in the chimney between the rim wall and the tower. Scramble (easy 5th class in some spots) behind the tower from the west side to the highpoint of the rubble. The route starts on the high point of the rubble.


Protection 

Double or triple set from #2 camalot down to blue alien, stoppers, I placed a #3 pecker and a blade up top but now that there is a bolt it might not be nessesary.
One 70 meter rope. (a 60 meter might work)
