Fine Whine, 5.9

1st-2nd Pitches- 200’- 5.9/ Climb up the arching corner on solid varnished rock. A few lay back moves protected by a large piece (6”) gets you over the crux. Continue to follow the crack out right to a small rest. Then angle back left into the corner on lesser quality rock. Climb up the rest of the corner to a short and easy chimney section at top. If you continue to the top of the chimney to set a belay, your partner might need to simul climb a bit, but it is a much more comfortable and sunny belay (gear or tree belay).
