Comments: I placed one each of 1.5,2.5,3.0,3.5 wild country, and one 4 BD on this kick-ass route.

Comments: As of Tuesday, April 27th, 2010, every single bolt has been replaced on Fantasia on The Oracle by me and Darren Knezek including a new bolt or two at each anchor. The anchors at the top of the very last pitch and the pitch before that have been completely replaced. Enjoy either a hefty glue-in or a half inch bolt in place of the old, scary manky bolts on the pitches that had bolts.

Comments: I did the first two pitches of Good Plantains, then hooked onto the last pitch of Dancing and did the 10c variation. Possibly the coolest exposure i've experienced in that canyon, pulling that roof. Props to Perin.

Comments: I had a lot of fun on this route today. It's really tricky and pumpy. Props to Andy.

Comments: for some reason this feels harder than 10d to me, but maybe that's because i'm trying to climb the crack straight in and not use any outside holds. damn my purist mindset.

Comments: Did this completely clean this week. Awesome, exposed, traumatizing. What else do you expect in Fisher Towers?

Comments: I definitely enjoyed myself here yesterday. It would be a tragedy if the roofs on the Apollo wall didn't get bolted. They look so stellar (no pun intended). Seriously though, they need to have routes on them. More steep limestone would compliment this area very well.

Comments: Wow! thanks for putting this up tristan, this is rad. I thought no one knew this tower even existed. You should put up H.J. Pinnacle and High Roller too...if you can find them :) (if you haven't already, that is)

Comments: i felt the funk today, but instead of throwing to the jug, i worked the crimps right under it. still fun and funky

Comments: WOAH the crux at the top is THIN and exciting. Kind of caught me off guard

Comments: Climbed the first and second pitch in one long pitch. The rope drag was...manageable. The second pitch is definitely classic, exposed, and a workout. The last bolt seems a little close to the anchors, and it makes clipping the chains quite the ordeal. 120 feet of good jugs never felt so good.

Comments: Everest 201 is quite the little pumpfest, especially at the top, making moves off of crimpers/side pulls. Loved the route.

Comments: This route is not as fun as everything else on this wall. I was kind of disappointed when i got on this route.

Comments: Cool route! The feet were a little slippery when i began the lie-backing section, which made it pretty exciting.

Comments: Red-pointed this route about a year ago before it had gotten remotely "cleaned up." It took me forever to figure out the crux, which involves solid but scary crimpers. Fun, fun route that should be climbed more often.

Comments: Darren Knezek and I did this in May 2008 and split the last pitch into two pitches. Great route. Love the exposure.
