Eva starting up Bock!

Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


This is a bitty route snuck in between Doc's Route and Arete that adds another low-end moderate for those inclined. Climb the line of big holds (PG-13) left of the retrobolted Arete start aiming for the wide crack above. Use the cracks on the left for protection. Near the top, there is an okay green Alien placement. Finish by pulling up over the arete to the right.

Note, if this line has another name, we can change the name.


Between Doc's Route and Arete, start on the south face and going around to the west.


#3, #2, #1 Camalots, a green Alien. Longs slings for the tree above, or more conveniently, you can use the bolts above Arete with a 24" sling + 8" QD and a 48" sling + 8" QD to reduce wear on your rope.

There are a lot of loose blocks at the top, but there's a detached block on the right wall - a logical foothold if trying to move around right to the anchor for the arete - which is ready to go and extremely dangerous for anyone on the ground. I'd recommend heading straight up and belaying from the tree.

This would be OK if the bushy start and rubble-filled finish were cleaned, but it's hard to recommend it as is.
