Ancient Art is the most classic and moderate free climb in Fisher Towers. While the often-photographed summit pitch is the most memorable, the lower pitches can also captivate with everything from face climbing on pebbles to many 5.6 to 5.8 chimney sections. The rock has some integrity (some of your protection will hold), but place gear carefully. One of the easier multi-pitch desert climbs, Ancient Art's exposure and 5.8 chimney make it only suitable for seasoned 5.8 desert leaders and followers accustomed to exposure.
