The bottom 4 pitches alone are called Fools Gold but when linked into Fight The Power you get a proper top to bottom, all gear, adventure route of the north face in its entirety. These pitches can be dirty and/or wet. If you want clean perfect rock don’t bother with this route.

Pitch 1 Trend up slab passing through shallow corners eventually running it out and traversing right to gain the upper crack of the chimney. Plug a large unit in crack and shimmy safely to ledge and make belay. 5.10

Pitch 2 Follow finger crack out right till it ends and then make a 20’ run to tree ledge up high. Build belay. 5.9

Pitch 3 The jungle pitch. From here choose your adventure... I went left to an offwidth  after decking when I went right. While climbing the offwidth you can look out left and see bolts for conquistador, cut back right for a bit and build a belay. 5.What??

Pitch 4 mantle over buldge and climb face eventually bushwhacking to the cat walk. Trend slightly right on the catwalk to put yourself under Fight The Power. 5.moss+

Pitches 5-7 climb super fun route Fight The Power.


This route starts between Conquistador and the large left facing chimney. 


Double rack 00-2, Offsets useful, one piece between 3”-4”, tricams, nuts. No fixed gear
