Description

The Fortress is exactly what it sounds like: Solid, well protected, and the hardest to siege at RR.

The routes here give the 5.10 and 5.11 climber plenty of options for climbing. Native Tongue and Nevermore have some of the coolest moves and positioning at Raven Rocks. Mostly consists of steep fun opening moves leading to good rests and exciting finishes.

Top-rope access for most routes can be accessed by a short scramble to the summit.
