BETA PHOTO: Doom Seam starts just right of the dead tree, goes...

Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Approach the dead tree ledge by following 2 bolts through a very difficult slab, or from the right at the base of Line-of-Sight Wall. From the ledge, ascend an easy slab to a rest just below the bulge. A powerful move through the bulge puts you at the base of a shallow flaring seam. Thin sequential laybacks with desperate feet lead to a finishing jug and anchors. A completely unnecessary 5.5 2nd pitch exists, if you really want to get to the top.

Location 

This line is just right of the dead tree on the right side of September Wall, or about 40' right of the Giant Dihedral.

Protection 

9 bolts to anchors.

The sweetest, thin, vertical crack/face climb anywhere!!! Have not sent, but this is one stiff puppy. The first ascent team felt this climb to be 12d during a fine, greasy August day, because they are madmen!!! I often climb at this level and found it to be daunting and improbable. However, this line is so fine it's not to be missed!!!!! Ever!!! Climb this line and happiness will surely follow!!!
