The Fin

(2 routes)

The fin is a knife-like blade of rock seen from the top of the upper gorge. The route can be started off the slabby terrace accessible from the gully Left of Shindig Gully or by climbing the first two pitches of Siberia and traversing right over a rib. Look for a ring bolt on a ledge just above the top of the terrace.

One star for the final pitch only. Endure poor prior pitches going up and stuck abseil rope coming down to get to it.

Start slabby rock below The Fin and move into a steep gully/chimney just beside The Fin feature. Some loose rock. The crux (grade 15?) is a small overhang. Climbed with light packs and alpine boots on account of snow in the gully. Descended Shindig Gully
