Trend right at the start to establish under the finger crack proper. Get good gear (small TCU) from stance and gun up a tricky sequence to find more small gear and tricky and polished climbing above! The face is really polished so you may find it pumpy for the grade. Move left under roof section and continue up overhanging blocky dihedral to chains.


This is the obvious, finger crack up the center of the lower tier of the Thindependence Wall.


Standard rack. A couple extra small cams and wires. Chain anchor.

Does everyone move immediately left under the roof/end of finger crack?? I went straight up the slot/corner. I wouldn't do it again that way, but it was cruxy, loose and dangerous gear in bad rock! Fun times :-) Bring a #10 Hex for the top of the slot if you give it a go.
