DescriptionA couple of years back a pillar fell down at the base of the route revealing a beautiful 5.11d stemming corner. This joins the left-traversing arch of Fortitude making for a great, sustained pitch. It was a great early spring surprise.
LocationJust to the right of the Cave, and immediately right of White Eye. Obvious, very white, left facing corner.
ProtectionTwo 1/4" bolts were replaced. Without the pillar the route is safer (its not there to swing into). The nuts protecting the crux section can be levered out if not well set, so be careful, but when they're in they're in - I've fallen all over them. We replaced a single 1/4"-er on the ledge where the hard climbing ends, and belayed off of that, it can be backed up in a crack. Rappel off the bolt or continue to the Bonfire Ledge through a forest of lichen. The rest of the pitches are dirty, but look great.
