  • Description 

    This route 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.

    This was formerly called Inthinuation in Rossiter's Boulder Climbs North guidebook. His more recent Flatirons guidebook lists it as the name given here.

    Just 10-15 feet R of Monodoigt, ascend a small overhang with a long reach L to a undercling bucket. Turning the overhang and getting your feet situated L on the slab is likely the crux. An occasional tips seam supplemented with arÍte holds on the R draw you upward. Finish on the same ledge as Monodoigt. This would be challenging to protect as a lead. Fun, short.

    As a TR, the anchor is slightly to the L of the line.


    Protection 

    Hmm, big cam, probably #4 Camalot to start, then finger-sized cam, then maybe wires or offsets. Cams for anchors.
