I've installed anchors on pitch 4 of topo oceans and it can now be rapped with a single 70m. I checked out your original variation, Dan. Bold and spicy is all I have to say. Tough moves on thin to nonexistent gear. Not sure I would want to repeat the route that way. Maybe someday...

Heading down Sunday weather dependent.

Five rigs out at the Fortress yesterday. Wicked cold and a bit windy but overall not awful. No snow on the south-facing side though there was a light dusting up high on the north-facing side

Four of us dashed up Topo Ocean. Tim and Tyson finished via the sick finger crack on Yellow Fin and Patrick and I did the 4th pitch variation of T.O. Saw another party over at the Books.

Weather's looking good for the rest of the week, so it's gonna be primetime at the fords. Get after it!

Who picked off this gem? Thought it was possibly an FA, until we looked up about 15 ft beyond the corner and saw some old rappel tat.

Thought it was probably a touch harder than Perfect lieback, but similar quality and length. The line is about 150 yards West of the Books area of the Fortress, and a little higher up the hill.

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.
