This wall is actually part of The Fortress and can be found on the eastern end of the formation between the Winter Prime and Red Pillar walls.

Getting There 

The current, most obvious trail ascends roughly in the middle of The Fortress; near the top, a trail should split right and lead you toward the eastern half from which you can gain access to the numerous walls.

This beautiful and sustained finger crack follows a awkward offwidth crack into a clean splinter finger crack up a smooth head wall. With pefect finger locks and lye backs, this is by far one of the best cracks i have done!!!There are 2 ways of doing this climb which are:1. Start from the left and traverse to the right into the finger crack2. Or take the direct start on the tricky offwidth that makes the 10c grade pretty stiff. Though definitly the best choice if ur up for a challenge....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
