Description

The first section of cliff that you approach from the top car park. The climbs are described from left tonight. This contains a good selection of moderate routes. The middle section of the cliff can drip after rain. Most routes are equipped with fixed hangers and chain anchors.

Ethic inherited from Fort Knox

Fort Knox is a sport Crag. There are a few trad lines or mixed routes and theses are marked as such but in general you can have a great day with a handful of quickdraws and a rope.

Shares a few holds with MM. Run out up high, safest to exit to anchors at MM, beware the tree.

Good fun. Great warm up. Can take a medium cam between the 2nd and 3rd bolt to reduce the runout.
