30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The left arete of the huge roofs of The Fin is extremely exposed and gives extraordinary climbing for the grade. The second pitch is outstanding. One of the best VSs in the Boulder Ruckle.
1) 4b, 17m. Climb a crack to a small ledge. Traverse right and up a short corner to a sentry box and belay.
2) 4c, 18m. Traverse right along the fault-line for 5m then climb rightwards to gain the exposed arete. Ascend the arete to an overhang. Pull over and climb past a large flake to an easy exit groove. © Rockfax

βeta: I tried the traverse with feet in big break first, but found the hand holds too vague, and discovered the lower traverse was easier. Either way, you've still got to pull up onto the face, which is the bit I failed on! (I could see the thread runner... far above me...) Must go back when my elbow's recovered and I've got my strength back.

βeta: I think the way to do the traverse is with your feet in the big break. Bridge up out of back of the sentry box and fix a good high runner. Shuffle across on good footholds until you are about half way to the arete, then pull up on to the wall above. Now you can stand in balance, fix a thread runner, enjoy the exposure and pose for photos. A memorable pitch and probably the best VS at Swanage.

βeta: Following on from Jason's comment, another significant block has come off the traverse, check out the picture! - http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=34302 I think the rest of that break is fairly solid, but you now have to make the move up from the break a little further left. Great climbing, but I completely failed in trying to pull up from the fault onto the face/arete so my partner had to take over. Personally I thought that move was harder than 4c, but I'm out of practise so not sure. The traverse is the best bit, (beta spoiler....) you need to do a hand traverse along the lower ledge, the foot holds don't look like much but they're actually pretty reasonable.

SenzuBean 29 Aug, 2016 AltLd O/S First pitch was brilliant climbing, nice and varied to a great belay ledge. Second pitch was quite difficult to protect the traverse (one okay nut in the middle), and then I couldn't get any gear at all in at the arete. I finally managed to get one so-so purple totem in a pocket, but I wouldn't have wanted to fall on it. If I had fallen, and the cam ripped, I would've taken a monster swing (and if the nut failed too, I would've bashed into a rock wall). Because of the poor gear on the traverse and on the bottom of the arete, I think this route was too serious for VS (although in hindsight, maybe it would've been fine if I traversed with feet on the higher break?). Did the move onto the arete, which was brilliant. Then pleasant climbing, and a fairly amenable roof followed by the top-out.

mikehenesy 7 Aug, 2010 Lead O/S Cracking rock, good gear, traverse a bit reachy at one point. Unknown to me Stuart fell off the traverse - and he's a big lad! Thought he was just trying to free stuck gear. Like the experienced aplinist that he is he prussicked back up to glorious success. Had the foresight to dangle some slings down for the last 'trial by loose earth' shitty bit, the tops are getting even looser - everyone should do this!
