Melissa on Fantasy


Start on the face 8 feet from right corner. Climb up and slightly right to a side pull directly under the roof. The next 8 feet is difficult and thin climbing heading up and slightly to the right. Easier climbing will take you back to the left finishing at the notch in top of wall. A very technical and sustained climb. This is a really nice but overlooked route with a lot of climbing for a short distance.

Sven's guide book lists Fantasy as a 5.9. I am not sure that the line I posted is the line that was originally intended (the guide book is a bit ambiguous). However, the climb posted seemed like the logical line to follow and was quite fun, technical, and sustained. At least to me though the climb felt much harder than 5.9.

No way 5.10b - 5.9 and easier than Upper D. May feel like 5.10 for shorter people. A fun, slightly overhanging jug haul

Jug Haul? I'm pretty sure we are not doing the same line. I don't hit a jug until the last third of the climb and at 5' 10" I'm not the tallest climber but I thought I sandbagged this at 10b. Paul, when do you traverse to the right? I'm probably off route.

Definitely 5.9. Mike, you were probably off route.
