Paul starting the crux corner.

Description 

Located on The Berghaus Wall ,in Three Finger Canyon. A climb with some well protected but delicate moves.Perhaps less difficult for a long reach?.Takes the obvious steep right facing groove/crack in the center of the slab.

P1)Easy slab to first bolt then two more to the top of the corner. From here pleasant 5.7 climbing straight up ,then slightly left to broken crack ,up from this passed one more bolt to double anchors. 140'5.9

Location 

Three Fingers Canyon. From I.70 gate entrance drive 5.8 miles to right turn, 2.1 miles (4 wheel) to canyon entrance. Walk though entrance then scramble up talus on right to the climbs ( see Photo)

Protection 

Cams.Camalots #.5 #.75 #2.#4.small stopper.slings. two 60m ropes for rap.

I climbed this back in 2010 before it was listed on this web site and enjoyed it. It was easier than Cat walk (under rated 5.7) I would call in 5.9-. fun climb.
