DescriptionThis is the best crag in the RRG for learning trad climbing. There is the greatest concentration of easier routes, with quality routes at every grade from 5.6 to 5.11.
The aspect is generally southern, with some routes getting morning sun and some getting afternoon. The wall is hot in summer, but somewhat sheltered in light rain.
There are a few easy and moderate multi-pitch routes so this is also a great wall to get a little MP practice in a well travelled setting.
Fortress can be very crowded at times. Large groups often take over the crag which can ruin everyone's day.
If you are a trad climber and visit the area you can't pass up spending some time here.
