Z man on first pitch of Toe Tip


This is not one of the classics of Tahquitz. Start to the right of The Slab, and well left of Fingertip Traverse. Two or three pitches take you to the brushy ledges below the lieback of Fingertip Traverse. The long crux pitch is on the face between Fingertip Traverse (right-facing corner) and Fingergrip (left-facing corner). Face climb up along a thin, splitter crack. As the crack begins to disappear, use the Fingergrip corner for protection as you continue up and left, eventually reaching easy climbing on low angle rock.

The first pitch is a nice way to get to the jungle but the second pitch is a total contrivance.
