Hard but fun off-width climbing. A multi-bolt rap station is on the finishing ledge.


From the Mace approach, follow the spur trail around the north side of North Mesa. Continue around to the West face of this formation. Fat Bastard is actually located on a sub-tower of North Mesa which sits on the Southwest corner. Find the obvious chimney that marks The Hurricane. From The Hurricane base hike up and left to access the start ledge. Rusty Cage (5.10+) also starts from this ledge.


Doubles from 2 to 5 Camalot plus 2x4's or Big Bros. Most folks TR this route after climbing The Hurricane.

Mattson and Burcham did the FA on TR after doing The Hurricane. For some unknown reason I decided to lead the thing. Anyone else been on the sharp end of this bad boy? The Doctor Jan 19, 2008
