Description Suggest change

The Petit Bastille, Rossiter: "This is the long, low ridge, just south of the old railroad cut/Fowler Trail, behind The Bastille." Stand in front of the Lori J. Biehler bench and look East at the Petit Bastille. From the highest point, you'll see 2 obvious lines, one on the left side and one on the right. The line on the left is Plankton Stew.

Start in a right facing dihedral, climb right over the bulge or go right of it (crux), and then continue up the crack. The bulge was fun.

This is a mossy, licheny, occasionally loose route -- very different feel than most of the routes I've done in Eldo. If you're wondering whether the weather is going to hold, or if you've just walked off the Bastille and feel like something different, check it out.

Descent -- easy walk off East down the scree.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack to #3 cam, mainly using smaller cams/TCUs. Bigger cams for the anchor.
