DescriptionFeast of Fools begins near the same corner and roof system of Nurse's Aid and Hans' Puss.
P1: Begin just right of the start of Hans' Puss (the rightmost, steepest corner). Climb this ever-steepening corner system until you reach the first of several roofs. Pull this roof and step left to a rest. Pull the second roof into an overhung corner protected by the lone remaining fixed pin. Creative stemming and reaches will get you to easier terrain (joining with Hans' Puss here) which is followed around the corner of the buttress to the right and belay at two bolts. A great pitch. 5.10b, 75'.
P2: The crux section (a few moves of 9++) is cool. Head up off the belay to the small roof band above. Breach the roof with fingerlocks into a narrow, left-facing corner. Belay at an oak tree on the GT ledge. 5.10a, 70'.
