pitch 1, follows a seam past two bolts and decent protection to a belay (and escape) in hole. (climbers can exit out to gully between Goosehead and this fin). pitch 2 is the better of the two pitches although some creative nuts and tcu placements are needed. Runout but with clean fall on very steep 5.6/7 moves, but the cruxes have good bolts (3/8" circa 1992). For confident leaders.


downhill (south) facing side of fin opposite of Goosehead. Approach down gully and around very end of fin. Escape from 1st pitch involves belly crawl. Summit can be down climbed or rappeled.


stoppers, brass nuts helpful, friends to 3"
