|Climbed long ago with Guy, Kathy, and several others.|
Barely able to follow this sucker with lots of
tension up an down. Better form than Jumars though.

|A truly classic climb in a spectacular position. Well worth the effort required to get there. The difficulty is less than stated in the guidebook. Probably 5.6/7. The pro is excellent: I lead it using only stoppers, hexes, and tri-cams. "Squeezers" not required: you'll appreciate the lighter load.|
There was water in the creek bottom on the secondary use trail, but we have had unusually high rainfall amounts this year. Miner's Lettuce was growing in abundance.

|The Finger Rock Canyon trailhead is less than 1/2 mile from my house. I stare up at Finger Rock from my home-office every day. As discussed, the crux of the climb is the approach. The technical portion is not really 5.8 as the guidebook says -- 5.5+ would be generous. My best "mailbox-to-mailbox" time is just under 3 hours.|

|Third time to the base of Finger Rock, this time I climbed to the upper belay station (at the fist), but wimped out on the last bit, failing to reach the top - too much exposure - no pro. Down-climbed the south direct gully and ran into many obstacles and shindaggers. This hike is always an adventure.|
