Finishing out the lead of "Far Reaches" in the fad...
Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


This is just right of the first pitch of the Standard Route. In fact, it shares the first pitch ledge with that route. This is a hard and scary lead. It use to have a single, fixed pin below the first section of 12 down low on the climb. You need to be fit to lead this. It makes a good TR.


This is between the Standard Route and Gonzo's Lament.


Wires and larger to an inch or two. Hard to protect.

Stellar pitch, it's all just barely there. Definitely a tough lead, but the gear is there, and it's good.

Right on, Monty! Wish I could have stuck around to watch it go down. Good to finally meet you yesterday. Did you find the trail?
