BETA PHOTO: Yellow: Tee it Up (5.7+)
Red: Seven Steps (5.10a)

Description 

Climbs the left-hand side of the summit block above Rational Expectations and Magali's Arete. This route is an easier alternate to Seven Steps, which is located on the right-hand side of the block.

The summit is perhaps the coolest vantage point in the entire Fortress area.


Location 

Climbs the left-hand side of the summit block atop Rational Expectations and Magali's Arete. This is the summit block that separates the Right Side Gully from the Central Gully. For more info, click here

APPROACH
Climb either Rational Expectations or Magali's Arete to access the start of Tee it Up.

DESCENT
Descend by rappelling from rings/chains atop the route. It is possible to rappel west to the base of Adaptive Expectations or east into the Central Gully. When rappelling back into the Central Gully, there are two options. If you rappel to the top of Rational Expectations, it will take 3 more raps to reach the creek. If you rappel to the top of Snickerdoodle, it will take 2 more raps to reach the creek (although ropes have been known to get stuck when pulling from Snickerdoodle).


Protection 

Bolts (1/2" Rawls), 2 bolt anchor with rappel rings (Fixe Triplex bolts)
