The Natural Rate of Unemployment follows a series of flakes and edges up the steep face on the left hand flatiron of the Fortress. The crux involves awkward stemming and thin face moves through the middle section of the route. This is followed by easier climbing to a set of rap rings next to the prominent pine tree near the top of the formation. A single rappel or lower with a 70 meter rope from the rings by the pine tree will get you back to the base. If youre climbing with a 60 meter rope, continue 6 meters (easy 5th class) past the tree rings to the anchors at the top of the formation and rappel Capitalism & Freedom (two rappels with a 60 M).
