Follow existing trails and climb using removable protection or in climbing areas with existing approved fixed anchors or bolts. Development of any new rock climbing, bouldering or rappelling areas and development of any climbing routes involving the permanent installation of new fixed anchors or new trail construction requires prior Forest Service authorization.
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.
