Description

Lover's Fortress is an 8-foot buttress at the entrance to the Mini Fortress area. It is located in the tree line just before First Fortress Boulder, and has shade for the majority of the day. Being in the Mini Fortress area, not many people come by. On busy weekends, you may only see a couple people all day, if at all. Being only 8 feet tall, most climbs start directly on the ground to have any real challenge. There is an easy walk-off the back of the boulder. The ground at the base of the east side of the boulder is fairly flat.

Getting There

Follow the directions to the Mini Fortress top roping area. If approaching Mini Fortress (and its first wall, First Fortress / First Fortress Boulder) from the south (where the climber's parking lot is,) turn to your right (east) at the last gulley before exiting the tree line and walk down to the last boulder in the tree line.

If approaching from the north, just after passing First Fortress on your right (west) look into the tree line to the south and find the first boulder downhill (east).

The boulder appears unremarkable from the path in the trees, but walking around to its east facing side reveals a number of short-but-interesting climbs.
