Description

This route is located in the alcove just right of Funkemental. It is immediately to the left of the contrived (and should be mixed) Great Expectations. Look for a nice-looking right-facing dihedral that angles slightly to the right.

Scramble about 6 ft. upwards to the base of the dihedral to begin the route. Most of the climbing is really fun stemming with some jams and finger locks in the dihedral for added enjoyment. The route merges with Great Expectations (and its annoyingly close bolts). It's amazing that in an area devoid of ethics, Fishisms was spared from the drill. The route was a little dusty due to lack of traffic, but was definitely not dirty.

Protection

Standard rack up to a 3.5 Friend/3 Camalot. Shuts for anchors (shared with Great Expectations).
