Description Suggest change

Shady and Secluded, the rock here is not as lichen covered as most in the mini fortress.

Getting There Suggest change

Mini Fortress PathContinue along path beyond Square Block Buttress, this is the next obvious buttress with two wide cracks going up either side of a roof. This is the furthest north face of the Mini Fortress area. The area is often overgrown in the summer, so this route requires a little path finding.Bushwhacking OptionFollow the paved trail from the south climber's parking lot north for about a mile. Just before the trail bends east (and subsequently heads towards the campgrounds) there should be trail marker 4. Cut directly west through the grass at this marker towards the cliff line. Once you get up into the trees a bit, find (or create, depending on the foliage and time of year) the path heading south. Fortress Wall is a small ways south of trail marker 4.
