Description

Fool's Game is located on the right side of the Prow area, in the last big right-facing corner. First climb a short pillar with a finger crack in it (shared with Mayflower) and then move straight ahead and climb the right-facing corner. Tough moves if you take the corner straight on. Above, some off-fingers stuff makes for surprisingly interesting climbing to the rim.

Protection

Nuts, small to #3 Camalot sized cams.

TR'd this as a warmup and led Mayerflower. This felt like sustained 5.9 with a few 10a cruxes throughout, to include the bouldery start off of the ground in the finger crack. Apr 23, 2017

Lead this, TR'd mayflower so I can't evenly compare, but I did feel like this was a little steeper than Mayflower May 31, 2015

Agree on the above comments and it's definitely a good step harder than Mayflower to OS, but even more fun because of the diversity of movement and coolness of the gear. May 16, 2013

Felt more like 10b to onsite... but an excellent route, very diverse. Apr 22, 2009

My first lead at PF. Why because it is probably the least likely crack at the Forks. I am too much a face climber.
It was GREAT!!!! May 9, 2008
Even better than Mayflower! Jun 8, 2007
