Karsten climbs the beautiful 2nd pitch dihedral.
Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>


This underated climb is a fine outing that can be done as two pitches or as one long pitch with a 60m rope. The crux comes where you expect on the brilliant 2nd pitch dihedral.

Pitch 1: Begin to the right of Ride the Lightning in a left facing dihedral up to the base of the book.

Pitch 2: Use stemming, palming, fingerstacks to make your way up the perfect corner. You'll be wishing there was more.


Rap with two ropes.


Nuts and cams to one inch. Bolted anchor at top.

The first "pitch" is basically 5.5 choss that doesn't take much, if any, solid gear.
