PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

P1: Climb the thin crack that is easier that it looks from the ground. Protection can be a bit fiddely, but a small nut protects the crux move perfectly. After 60' the difficulty eases and you can traverse over to a 2 bolt anchor on the left or build a gear anchor at the base of the dihedral.

P2: Climb up the obvious dihedral to the top. Gear anchor.

Descent: Walk off by scrambling to the NW and back around to the base.

Location 

Right in the middle of the South face of the Fortress. 40' right of the obvious Bay Tree Belay offwidth.

Protection 

Mostly thin gear. Small nuts, doubles of small cams, singles from 1"-3". I found the smallest BD nut was great for the P1 crux.
