Description 

A long sandstone block about 10 feet high featuring slabby boulder problems ranging from V0 to V5. Delicate footwork is required on this sandstone slab. It's a good venue to practice or develop footwork. Very exposed to the sun except in early morning and late evening.

Getting There 

At the farthest end of Table Rock. If coming from the top of the mesa follow the trail past the radio towers then veer left at the cliff. You'll see the trail going down into the old quarry area. The Fortress faces the first wall and has easy access from both sides. If you pass the huge bolted block turn around.
