Sept 1, 2009 – Fisher Towers Difficult Aid

The Spanish team of David Palmada and Esther Ollé have established a difficult new aid line northwest face of the Titan in Utah’s Fisher Towers with the almost unheard of grade of A6+. The route Look Out! Danger consists of 11 pitches and includes three pitches of A4+, three pitches of A5 and one pitch of A6+. The team placed no bolts and proposed the A6+ grade based on their repeat of  Intifada which was originally graded A6 but is now regarded to be A4+ or A5 by those who have repeated the climb. The A6+ grade reflects the route’s marginal protection and questionable belays, which in one case consisted primarily of hooks. More details here.
