Fitz's Folly climbs the varied weakness up the far right side of the west face. This route can be described as bushy, good cracks, good pro.,and is the only route on the formation you must pitch out. Second pitch is the closest thing you can get to climbing consolidated brown sugar as you climb an exposed and extremely rotten arete, to gain the true summit of the Real Cloud Ripper Tower.


Obvious bushy weakness up right side of the west face.


Standard rack to 3". top of tower is slung with TAT.
