The technical route up Finger Rock begins in the western saddle between Prominent Point and Finger Rock itself. The climbing starts up the north-northeast face of the Finger, immediately above the trail's end:
Climb up easily protected flake, past small bulge and cracks, to a ledge with two small trees (~50').
From ledge, continue up easy terrain, past a bolted 5.8 crux to two-bolt rappel station (~30'). The teetering summit block is another ten feet above the bolts.
A single 60m rope will allow for a rap to the ground.
Extreme exposure and scary, shifting rock will likely make your summit experience a short one. But hey, at least your legs and nerves are trashed for the brutal, three hour downhill slog that lies ahead! Happy trails!
We had for protection a few medium sized cams (0.5-1.0 camalots) and a set of nuts. A single 60m rope will allow for a rap to the ground. 50m may require two raps.
