Fifi Buttress To Close! MORE INFO >>>


this route is excellent. The first part is the hardest, the second part is more run out and has good holds. The moves around bolts 2,3,4 may require some time to figure it out, manteling is a good idea!


the left side of the prominet arete you first get to.


QD's , you may want a few slings to tie of knobs.

Before the crux move below the 3rd bolt, you can move right 2 feet and reach up and clip the 3rd bolt; then return left and pull the tricky move with confidence.

I only found 8 bolts on this route, contrary to ST... Did I miss one?

Great mantle at 3rd bolt crux, eases off a bit after that - with a few easier, yet attention grabbing mantles up higher.

Don't miss the little potato chip crimp for your left hand at the 3rd bolt crux.

Run out 20'+ on easier (5.7-.9) terrain up top

9 bolts. Not sure where slings would protect what is not already protected by bolts.
