Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 Details
This area is closed March 15 - June 30 for peregrine falcon nesting.
DescriptionChimney from the narrow slot to obtain the detached outcropping or simply walk around to start ten feet above. Commit to the the face, minding the gap, to reach the first bolt. Tenuous face climbing leads into a right-facing weakness, which is followed by a brief section of easier climbing. Smear on down-turned crystals while clawing for edges to overcome the second crux. Upon reaching a grungy looking pillar trend right, clipping two bolts, before finishing up the arete.
Chapalot is recommended for those who enjoy thin face. The rock prior to the arete is absolutely stellar; the rock on the arete is actually better than it appears. The bottom half of this route is sustained and delicate while the upper half has nice exposure.
Upon reaching the chains one can probably continue up by working behind the large pillar that Fort Stress ascends. From here one can join numerous other routes.
