Description

Long moderate with some fun climbing on knobs and the third pitch has some great exposure. Never done bottom to top on lead John and Scott stole the FA yesterday in record time.

Location

Drop down the west side of the Fortress. As you descend you will find a tower as the cliff base swings to the west. Scramble up gully between the tower and the main wall to the small saddle. 1) From saddle follow the bolts up the face to the right and belay on top of giant rounded flake. 2) Step across and climb more knobs to easy ground and belay below headwall left of crack/corner. Move left then up face as it eases look for a bolt on the left that protects easy moves up short headwall. Work your way around bushes to a big flat ledge with a single bolt. 4) Step across then work left to bolts leading up face. Single bolt belay where you can still look down at your partner. At the start if you go straight up the weaknesses then step right on to bolted face you will have a long single 10- pitch that will take you to the top of second pitch of the described route.
