Looks kinda dome-like. Is the upper section similarly wildly featured like the Obelisk? Is the nearby finger rock interesting at all?
Thanks for sharing this baby!

re: neat

The upper section, and the Golden Tower routes, are very Obelisk-like. In fact, we sometimes refer to this area as "Obelisk Light."

Finger Rock has 5 routes so far, the wild route Boldfinger (5.10 by Leversee); South Face (5.8 by Beckey, FFA by Brennan and I); West Face (5.7, Brennan & Bindner); Proctologist (5.9, Kenega, Holland & Bindner) and the stunning South Arete (5.9 by the same three idiots).

Haven't done Finger Rock here yet 'cause I need to find some of the older topos.

2013 additions

Last year (2013) Godars, Mucci and I did some new climbs on Hoffman. Thoroughly enjoyed the trips. If anyone needs/wants the beta, I'm happy to provide details. I've just been to preoccupied with other areas to mock up some phototopos. Partly, the angle for a good pic is hard to get on the Eastern face, where 3 of the lines were done.
