Rappelling the Fat One
Potential road closures in winter. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Although the WI3 rating is said to be somewhat understated early season, this sunny climb usually provides a mellow WI 3 line by January. By this time, the easiest place to begin is on the right hand side of the initial steep step. After overcoming this step, continue up low-angled ice and possibly snow, pass a small tree on your left, and finish at an excellent belay tree at the top. Rap down the route with two ropes or one rope with a v-thread.


Location 

Hike left from Bingo World/The Thrill is Gone about 150 yards. The climb will be obvious as it the widest flow and dominates this side of the wall. Directly below The Fat One is a 30-40 foot pitch of WI 3 that can be combined with the climb.

Don't bother after it's snowed even a couple inches. Complete slog to the anchors.

a 70m will barely reach in one rap from the small lower tree climbers left of the route
