love this crack! Kind of like it's easier little brother "Anti-Jello Crack" at Dome Rock, CA (5.9). Delicate, slabby, thin fingers is so much fun.

just after the "crux" traverse move (I agree it's easier than 5.9). heading up the crack from here felt a little awkward.

Comments: Lots of Poison Oak around the anchors for this climb, just about impossible to avoid.

Comments: We were actually able to do it with one 70m rope to the top, then rapped off the slung block to a slung horn/pinnacle to climbers right, then to the ground. Great climb.

Comments: I was glad to have a #4 for the short wide spot but it's not essential. Great steep jamming on this climb...a great line.

Comments: easier face climbing down low than Hobbit Roof. The crack/roof sections on both seem pretty comparable...totally locker.

Comments: I believe there has been some bolt replacement on this climb

Comments: the Snaz is good, but I thought the climbing on Caveat was much more enjoyable. Even without a sweet summit it's still one of my favorites in the Tetons. As described here...p5 is definitely the toughest of the cruxes.

Comments: I was on this route the same day as the photo poster Joe, Aug '07, and the bolts seem original. Some (maybe all?) Star Drive-ins and the last has a knifeblade with the bolt drilled through the blade as a hanger.

Comments: I'd agree on 11a. I did it with just a new style #4 above the roof (placed from the first fist jam just above the lip) and felt fine...the wider sections get much easier quickly. Fun jams.

Comments: It's easy for the rope to get stuck in the cams in the roof crack when you're belaying the 2nd (like on lots of roofs). A big hex once you pass the lip (a #11 works nice but something a little smaller might go too) makes everything smooth. Short but nice.

Comments: Best current route at the Fortress? I think so. Thanks for all the work put into these climbs Matthew and Romain. The upper sections reminded me of some arete climbs in the Gunks. Stuck ropes are a possibility on the first rap into the gully (happened to me) and having some pro to lead back up through the choss is nice.

Comments: I too thought the start was a little stiff. 10a maybe, and you have to climb a bit to get pro. When I grabbed the loose flake left of the crack on the start "ooh...that's hollow!" The fool in the gallery watching me dropped the brilliant comment, "if it blows you can take it home as a souvenir" No if it blows, i'll deck and wing it at you on my way bubs.
