A hand-crack start in a left-facing corner leads to a flared tight chimney with a fist crack in the back, which comprises the bulk of the climb.
This climb is listed as "Variamte" in Bloom 2, but the plaque says "Variante Argentina".
If you climb F.I.S.T., you could set a TR on this route by reaching to the right while rapping off.
On the far right side of Public Service Wall, and probably most easily reached by going around the prow from the Fin about 100 yds. This crack is located 10' right of the obvious splitter fist crack Federation of Interstate Truckers.
Hand size cams for the start, fist-size cams for most of the climb.
2-bolt anchor with chains.

Both this and FIST are on the Public Service Wall. Maybe they could be moved to the Public Service Wall Page? I guess someone would have to make one up.

the first time i did this route, there was a tall, really thin flake in it that was pretty spooky. i think the last time i did it (last spring) the flake might have been in pieces on the ground(?).
good call timmamok - nice wall that should definitely should have its own page. currently closed due to raptor nesting, while fin wall isn't.
