Description

Fountains shares its anchor with Portraits, to the left and nearly in the trad crack "To The Fire Wind". What makes Fountains so great is that every move ratchets up the difficulty till about the 60 foot mark. The fingery 5.12 crux comes in passing a small overlap to wrap a hand almost into the crack on the left but not quite. 15 feet of close encounters with the crack lead to easier climbing up and right. Fountains never uses the crack but picks off little crimps that are continuously out of sight. Three stars for continuity and superb climbing.

Protection

QDs only. At close to 90 feet, Fountains also needs 12-14 QDs and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
