I'd have to agree with Tyson. This corner crack is easily as classic as the Perfect Lieback but a bit hard (like 5.9 or so). We removed the tat and installed some anchors at the top. We also found two crack climbs on the east-facing formation below this corner were also classic. A full 30m of perfect hands and fingers in bullet stone.
The formation just west of the Fortress.

Great crag, Dan. John's gonna be upset I went over there and didn't get on his route. He's been telling me to for awhile now.

Went back to Main Alcove on Sat and climbed Serenity Now. Man, it is really good. We also ventured up the hand crack flake, knob job 50 feet right of it (the first pitch of the Unknown 10a in the Anderson guide?).

Next time I want to climb High Jinx to the Albatross. I have no idea what to expect so it should be quite the adventure. I gathered from earlier posts it has belay anchors.

Not to muddy the thread any, but saw so many boulders around Luther Pass too.

BUMPPPP.
What are some good .11 lines to get on up at the fortress? Just curious what other stuff is up there besides the obvious like hand of god and arrowhead and stuff.

The route just right of Hand of God (forms the right side of the same formation) is a good route. You start thinking it's a gimmie, then you round the corner and it changes up a bit. Good fun, good bolts on top, pro to 3", small wires useful.

What happened Dan?

I waited for you till 9:45, you didn't show up.

I had to go skiing instead. Which was cool too.

I left ONE minute before you arrived, Dan?

That's just wrong.

Hope to see you on Sunday. Let me know.

Small group of us headed out today to the fortress. Too many off us for multi pitch, so I think we will be just cragging 5.easy to 5.11ish. If you're bored and want to sink into some granite you should definitely cruise up. We'll be at the fortress parking in an hour or so.

Someone removed that block, Dan? Probably for the best. I've been out with a shoulder injury for the last few months. Looking forward to getting back out there soon.

Ha, ya Dan, the weekend before last we counted 8 cars at the Fortress. We climbed obscurities so we didn't see hardly anybody though... Kenny H. and I both led Dan-O-Bolt for the first time... verrrry cool stuff. More physical than I had bargained for at the top, but we both grunted through it clean. (more grunting was had by me, I think)

This Saturday, we had some fun on all of The Books area routes (the block was still there when we climbed Cat Scratch) then headed over to Wood Hood, where some of us got our butts whipped on the first pitch of HoG, (although I think I dialed some foot beta on TR that will make it go clean next time), while others cruised the first pitch of Yellow Fin. Then we all finished on Arrowhead. What a route! Didn't get the OS, but I think the RP is definitely going down next time we head up there.

For the onsite attempt Kenny and I both thought .11a was stout, but if you know the moves, I think it is fair? It is definitely powerful to get yourself established on that undercling and high enough to clip the bolt. I think we both said either Dan-O is soft or Arrowhead is stiff after climbing it...

Such a cool feature though. And that perfect foothold at the undercling seems like it was placed by a gym setter! Love it when natural lines work out so perfectly like that.

Dan, I've rapped Topo Ocean from the top a few times and never had a problem with a stuck rope. But in hindsight I should have moved that third station 15 feet climber's right.

Sweet pics, Tyson. Looked like a great day up there. I'm hitting basecamp tonight for some strength training and light bouldering if your around. Definitely using those resistance bands. Have a PT session tomorrow so I'll keep at it until I'm 100%.
