A small "extra-credit" summit lies about 100' north of Fee, it is higher than Fee and lies between Fee and Fi. From the summit of Fee, you may be tempted to find a route to the top. This is a dangerous temptation, however, as there are several suitcase-sized blocks lying around on slabs, ready to slide at the touch of a hand. This route is potentially hazardous for this reason, and a rope does not make it much safer. It is not recommended unless you want to climb to a summit reached by very few people.

I climbed it from the east, cranked around an overhang to avoid the loose blocks. Another steep move puts one on the top. I then downclimbed the route. It appears that this summit might be easy and safer to climb via its short, north ridge. There is an overhang but one may be able to span it.


A light rack, if any.

This is a pile! I figured it wouldn't be too bad until I got halfway up. The rock is really shitty, and I decided it wasn't worth hurting myself on this thing and climbed back down.
