Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 Details
This area is closed March 15 - June 30 for peregrine falcon nesting.
DescriptionWe only did the first pitch of this route, but it's an excellent pitch in its own right so I'm taking the liberty of adding it here. Perhaps someone can fill in pp. 2-3?
Pitch one begins with two bolts (stoppers can protect the tricky move to bolt #1), with a solid 5.10 move past the second bolt to reach a fun, face-hold encrusted crack that takes great gear. The pitch finishes up with thought-provoking moves past two bolts to an anchor shared with Cyberwanker.
LocationThis route is shortly after you round the corner to the Fortress's south face. It is the first route right of Cyberwanker, and is identified by a crack which does not reach the ground. Two bolts lead to the crack.
