Marshall Gilbert on "Fortunate Son"


To the far left of the rear face look for the deep pit under the roof with amazing and interesting sandstone iron pockets and jugs above and out of the pit. Crawl into the pit and search at the base of the boulder for the very low underclings in the horizontal crack.

Start matched with good underclings in the low crack and move into the first bucket huecos. Trend up and slightly right following iron pickets and swirls. Gain the pocket and crimps at the lip.

Trend left at the lip only slightly to engage more thin slopers and iron ripples to top out directly over the start with a technical mantle
