Description

Excellent and challenging face climbing, Fat Lady has a tricky start and balancy moves all the way. The big roof above keeps it dry and climbable in the rain.

Starting on a ledge above the main trail, make some difficult moves with scant feet to the first bolt (stick clipping is a good idea). Continue up the face to finish at anchors under the big roof.

Location

Starts on the face about 20' left of Best Seat, just right of a trad corner climb (Final Curtain). Rap from bolted anchors.

Protection

Six bolts, bolts/closed shuts for anchors.

Great route with a few challenging face moves. Following the crack at the top toward the anchors makes the route worth it! Fourth bolt up was spinning, both the hanger and nut, but we tightened it, so its good to go. Sep 7, 2013
