Bombs Bursting

Post by elcapitan1974 » Tue Dec 02, 2008 8:50 pm

The photo in the online guide shows someone pulling the roof, instead of move up the manky crack to the right. I think that is the original line, but was wondering is it still rated 5.8 when pulling the roof and running it out?

I was told it's 5.8 any way you go. Right, through the roof ,or left.

I have done the route both ways. I couldn't tell you which way was harder. The left way seemed more enjoyable though.

I agree, the left way is more enjoyable, except in the summer. I put up the left way in 98 and ran it out to the top ,only to get popped in the eyes by ground wasp. I am going the do the right line in a couple days and was just wandering. I remember it being allitle lose? thanks

you went up the left way in 98? that thing ( and the three variations) like most everything else at Fortress has been a trade route for quite a bit longer than that

If you pull the roof (center of the three ways), You get to experience the "Bombs Bursting Hold". Hence the name.
