Approximately 80 feet L of Monodoigt is a sizeable tree directly above a S-facing, smooth slab. This is the line. This climb is located on the W side of the Finger Flatiron in a small amphitheatre facing SW below & S of the Finger-Box col or just above the western slot between the Finger & Hand on the approach to Mere Wall. A pleasant TR perhaps more reminiscent of the Platte than the Flatirons in its friction climbing. You might argue about the grade on TR but it seems comparable to other 5.6 slabs in the Flatiron, especially if you imagine yourself 60 feet out from pro. It may be a pleasant TR if in mixed company with some folks wanting to do Nude Figures in a Hollow Fruit or Monodoigt and some wishing an easier objective or a bonus pitch after topping out the Finger.
Slings for the tree.
Friction up the slab. Bit of lichen. No pro.
OK, maybe a half star.
Ain't none. Tree for anchor
