  • Description 

    An obscure, east-face, slab route with a few twists. Hike to Fee, via Mallory Cave Trail, past Mallory Cave, between Finger Flatiron and Box to gully between 2nd and 3rd strata of Dinosaur Mountain or up past Stonehenge. Find the nadir of a nice looking slab of Fee.

    P1. Pleasant but slightly loose face climbing on the left side provides more protection than the cleaner middle of the face. 180 feet brings you to a slot to belay (save bigger pro for belay anchor).

    P2. Ascend a clean low angle rounded rib to the top of Moby's back (false summit), find a chimney, step (crux) across the abyss (slightly committing) on the right side, and climbing to the right provides more pro opportunities, find a notch and belay. A peek down the west side suggests further climbing opportunities.

    P3. 25 feet more of a blunt arete provides a climactic finish. On top there is relatively little protection opportunities; however, a #1 Camalot or #2 Friend can provide an anchor; and/or downclimb the short North Ridge.

    Perhaps a route name something more Leviathan....


    To #4 Camalot useful, 60m ropes nice.
