the short cruxy bit


Pillow Fight is located in the middle of Pillow Wall, just left of Davidson Dihedral (a prominent left-facing dihedral you can't miss). Fun hand-sized jamming as the crack goes vertical and the crack squeezes down to tight-hands and off-fingers to exit at the top. Fun route!


Cams from 1/2" up to #2 Camalot, bring along dupes in the mid-sizes.

Short but tricky! Maybe flared jams just aren't my forte, but this one feels harder than other 10's at the forks, such as Loose Lips or Raindance. As for gear, you should get by with 2 #2 camalots, and 1 each from #1, #.75, #.5, and #.4

It's like two tricky moves with thin hands and you're done. Nowhere near as sustained as Raindance or Loose Lips.

Short but sweet and as easy and well protected as 10 gets at The Forks.

Fun start with good hands leads into thin hands/ stacked fingers to pull to the top. Bottom section is great with some good balance moves as the crack leans.
