Hi Fi.

  • Description 

    Something to do when your friend has to bail on you two pitches into the day, and there you are on the upper part of Dinosaur Mtn. on a glorious November day, and nothing could be better than climbing warm rock in such a beautiful setting.


    Just around the corner to the left from the lowest part of the E. Face of Fi, on south-facing rock. Start just left of a tree, beginning from a perfectly round hueco that is head high. Climb more or less straight up the least line of resistance until you hit the E. Face. More like 35 feet than the 60 indicated in Rossiter's guide.


    It looked like medium nuts and cams up to maybe 1" or so, but having no rope on, that's just my impression.

    Done up and then left, the route is a little harder and gear is a concern, and it' is probably 45' onto the E Face. Safer is to do it to the right, coming onto the E. Face close to the top of the tree.
