First part of P1 of Fractals.


Complex topologies such as those found on this route can be described mathematically using fractals, hence the odd name.

P1 (5.9, 110 feet, 9 draws): Thrutch over the initial lip, and fire up through the V-slot above to gain easy terrain to the anchor. Fractals ascends solid rock with largely fun climbing and provides a good and moderate warm-up.

P2 (5.7, 65 feet, 5 draws): Climb through another V-slot to gain easy terrain after bolt 2.


Start ten feet left of FOAL.


Nine quickdraws, something for the double bolt anchor at the top of each pitch, a 60 meter rope. The rappel from the top of P1 is 100 feet to the ledge, so tie the ends of the rope.

Nice route and top notch bolt job, RW. Fun climbing on good rock all the way.

Fun, little multi-pitch and awesome to have in my backyard as I live off of Mill Creek! Has there been any thoughts of adding lower pitches below to make some of these 3 or 4 pitch routes. The rock looks similar, and there seems to be a ton more opportunity for routes to be put up! Anyhoo, thanks guys for providing some awesome climbing in Dumont!
