|On the back side of Swim Fin, you can find Blazing Fin. Blazing fin is an easily accessible crag with a variety of nice moderate routes on both the east and west faces. There are both bolted routes and gear routes, so there is a little something for everyone. There are several routes such as Makin Muffins (5.7) and Ego Donor (5.9) where you can lead one route and then top rope another from the same chains. You can find a shaded route here most of the time. Rather than filling up the area list with small areas, I am going to post routes on both "fins" here.|

there's a really good 5.8 gear route that starts just left of ego donor on swim fin and follows a crack system up and left and into a chimney. finish on the same anchors as ego donor but don't give in to the temptation of clipping any bolts, no matter how good they may look. there's bomber pro all the way up the route aside from a little runout on easy ground right after the fist crack, even back in the chimney near the end of the route.
this is a perfect climb to develop trad sense, especially where route finding is concerned (the pro does take some finding higher on the route). for me it was great practice and great fun.
