This is the big roof right of the Fortress. In center of roof is a "hole". Climb the right arching feature to right of the hole. Reach left, grab the hole, and pull the roof. Bonus style points if you put feet in hole and get an inverted rest!


Obvious roof right of Fortress.


Bolt in the hole. TR anchors on top. Some small gear too.

Hey Sean, I've always wondered, did Shane place that bolt on lead while hanging upside down from the pocket? A bold lead regardless...

That would have taken some remarkable abs! No, Doug put the bolt in on rappel. This is Crowders after all.
