Top of pitch 2


This fantastic nailing route is on the South Face of the Titan 50 or so feet to the right of the Sundevil Chimney.

P1- This pitch is steep and intimidating. It looks much harder than it is. Just a steep thin crack with lots of pretty good stopper placements. Climb to a hanging belay. (A2) P2- Climb up shallow corners and cracks. Traverse left to a right facing corner. When the corner switches to left facing, traverse left again via hooks and some thin pins to a good three bolt belay. (A3+)

P3- Nail a thin crack to a hook move left. Another thin seam leads to a drilled hook hole where you move left again into another thin crack. Climb that to reach a good bolt and then a 1/4" bolt. A shallow right facing dihedral leads to bolts which move left crossing an arete. Then more bolts and a short section of nailing take you to another three bolt anchor at a small stance. (A4)

P4- Some free climbing and bolts leads you to another thin crack at the top of the arete. Climb the crack via TCU's and small cams to an A2 crack. Climb the crack passing a few bolts to a hanging belay at a bolt and fixed pin. (A3)

P5- Climb an A2 thin crack passing some bolts and a small roof to more thin cracks and some bolt ladders to some broken, slopey groveling on a sandy ramp. There are three bolts here for a belay, but keep going. Climb 5.7 with one A0 move on a bolt to reach the good bivy ledge on the Sundevil chimney route.

P6,7- Climb the last two pitches of the Sundevil Chimney to the Summit.

Descent- Rappel either the Sundevil Chimney, or the standard Finger of Fate rappel route.

This, along with Death of American Democracy and Deadmans Party is one of the best routes in the Fishers. Pitch three has many aluminum head placements and is super dicey.


15 beaks, 15 blades, 15 lost arrows, 3 each angle to 2". many hooks, 20 aluminum heads, 10 keyhole hangers, 2 sets of stoppers (for 1st pitch) leeper cam hooks, 1 set of cams from tiny to #4 camalot.
