Description 

West facing crag w/ shade until early p.m. 7 50 feet lines running the gamut from bolts to trad. Rock quality is solid for the most part; that written, I would avoid large vw bug size "flake" on climber's right side. Hawk Rock, although closer than North Fin, seems forgotten in spite of good to excellent climbing on interesting features. Be forewarned that the 9s don't climb like 21st century 9s...

Getting There 

Contour down and back toward Windy Pt. parking from Nancy's thumb or drop directly down (westward) after having trekked south for approx. 150 yards from parking lot.

Replaced all the old bolts and hangers except for some anchors with ASCA safeclimbing.org/ hardware. I also found one hold on a route on the far left that had an enhanced hold. A'90s indiscretion on my part. I vaguely remember it was done to make the "impossible" first clip less difficult. I returned that hold to roughly it's original state. Clipping the first bolt is now almost impossible but you can do it or stick clip it. My apologies.
