BETA PHOTO: The route.

Climbing is prohibited until further notice.


Climb fingers and stem in a left facing corner to a ledge where a flake can be reached. Climb hands and fingers up the flake with nice exposure to a small roof. Pass the roof on the left via fingers/hands to a small ledge (optional belay). Move up and right via hands in a crack that cuts through the entire fin. Surmount the pillar and move left to a couple of airy hand jams to the summit (5.9-, 115 ft).


The route ascends the west face of Jack's Fortress. Start behind a large tree next to a large boulder. Speak with land owner for access.


BD: Singles from #0.4 - 4.0, stoppers, slings. Three bolt anchor. Rap 100' to the west. A 60 meter rope is fine for the rap.
