Overview
This route climbs an excellent roof dihedral to a sharp finger crack that eats your fingers and gives the route its name. An off-balance crux at the lip of the roof leads to a pumpy finger, off-finger, and tight hand crack. You can easily toprope the climb with long slings from the tree and 2 pro (for a directional) at the top of the crack.
