Description:

To the left of Ascent Gully, this is the first bolted climb. Clip 2 bolts then pull through small roof to spacious ledge. Possible to place #1 cam to avoid easy but consequential runout after second bolt.(Probably (R) or maybe (X) without trad pro) Pull through overhangs past 2 more bolts to anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Fortis

Very fun route. Roof took some time, but once I found the holds it was pretty straightforward. Watch loose rock at the top - a hold broke on me right before the anchors and nearly hit my belayer. Bring helmets.

Will look to lead this next time.

Leave your trad gear in the pack on this one. If you are ready to lead 5.10, then you won't need it.

3 out of 5 stars fun

Without trad gear there's a brief/easy unprotected couple moves that turned out to be no big deal.

A fun little route. I'd give it 5.10a. Not an R or X rated climb though. Gimme a break.
