An excellent climb on beautiful rock, Fish-eyed Fool follows a nice and intuitive line. The holds are good and the sequence is fun as long as you're thinking ahead. Great rest stances help relieve the pump -- use them!

Starting at a left-facing corner, climb the orange face, trending up and right to anchors.


Sanford Wall section, at the left end of the wall.


5 bolts, bolted anchors.

thanks to whomever replaced the 2nd bolt. i lead this the other week when there was just an empty hole where the bolt should have been, and I'm not gonna lie it was a little bit nerving. but i went this last weekend and saw that someone put in a shinny new bolt so no worries. don't pass this route up, its probably the best 10 at foster

The best route I did at Foster Falls. Very sequential, slightly overhanging but all holds positive. Best bolting job on this wall.

STOUT! Cool moves. Sequencey. Mid-grade leads dont expect to just blaze this route.

One of the best 10s at fosters with some fun, technical moves. From what I can guess, the anchors originally were directly above the last bolt right under the ledge at the top. I think that the anchors were moved at some point about 7-8 feet to the left, making the last section a little bit runout for a new leader - perfectly safe, but with potential for a 25+ft fall clipping the anchors.
