Routes in The Fortress

Siege, The T 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b A0 PG13

Description

This wall is located only 6 miles from the nearest trailhead, has relatively low elevation (approx. 7693 feet). However, the location feels remote and alpine in nature. First known technical line (The Siege IV A0 5.10c) was established in 2012, with a lot more rock left to explore.
Always check road conditions and peregrine closures Details

Getting There

GPS coordinates: 36° 30.560'N 118° 41.739'W. Take the Mineral King road in Sequoia National Park until you get to the Paradise Ridge trailhead near Atwell Mill campground. Take the paradise ridge trail for 3 miles up to the ridge. From there, The Fortress is roughy 2.5 miles NNW. Head cross country and contour through some small drainages until The Fortress and the gully below it come into view. Stay on the East (right) side of the gully until you're below the wall, then cross (only water) and make your way up to the base. Or take a helicopter, that would be easier.
