North America, United States, California, Sierra Nevada, The Fin, North Arête Chimney

The Fin, North Arête Chimney. In June, Dave Nettle, Kevin Daniels and I climbed an obvious crack system directly up the north face of The Fin starting on the spine of the ridge that joins the base of the north face. Based on the old rusty quarter-inch bolt and sling we found about halfway up the first pitch, we think the route, the North Arête Chimney (III 5.10+, five pitches) had been started a long time ago.
