About Fortress:

To approach, keep walking almost to Timbuktu Towers, cut down and back right at the arrow sign, then keep going and right up a boulder choaked gulley (3rd class). You will be between the Grey Giant and the Tombstone. Right at the end of the Grey Giant (on your left) cut between that and the formation at 11 o'clock (W end of Fortress) in the narrow canyon between. Do not keep going straight and slightly right (1 o'clock) or you will be at the back end of the fortress with no climbing. GO BACK OUT THE SAME WAY!!! We got really lost by trying to go around back. Plan on 1-1.5 hrs for approach.
