Description

The Fish starts with two bolts of moderate climbing to a large ledge. After another two bolts the climber can optionally transition off-route for a full rest. The route comes into its own after this section. Ascend a series of smooth crimps using delicate feet to obtain a deep in-cut. Power through to a featured horizontal weakness that allows some recovery. Climb the dark rock using two finger crimps, a small pocket, and shallow edges. The path of least resistance may require some trial and error.

The Fish has the reputation of being a bad route; however, I personally found it quite enjoyable. While certainly not a classic like The Wizard, The Fish has interesting movement on nice rock. The two ledges detract from the route but the top sequence is sustained enough for me.

Location

Found in the first amphitheater, The Fish is located immediately to the left of The Wizard. The route starts where the wall juts out and the trail slightly descends.

Protection

7 bolts to chains.

Finally got out there today and cleaned the loose block. What was left above the block didn't budge with the pry bar and should be OK for now.

The thing on the right my friend Greg had mentioned felt and sounded OK so I didn't touch it. May 17, 2014

Whether this climb is enjoyable depends on how many holds have broken since it was last climbed or how many break while you are on your way up. Jan 22, 2014
