Raptor Closures - 2016 Tunnel 2 Closure Lifted / Upper Canyon Road closures MORE INFO >>>


This is the centermost route on the wall. It was bolted on the lead in the style of the South Dakota Needles, mostly for practice with that style. I did it so long ago that I can't recall the exact number of bolts or pins. Rumor has it that at least one pin fell out, so it may be even more serious now. I thought the climbing was good and intricate.


You may need some small nuts, I can't remember.
