Reduced Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


Climb up over broken rock to a small roof in left-facing corner, place some good gear, and turn the roof on good but small holds. Climb the slightly runout face above to the anchors of Too Much....


The route climbs the broken rock and roofs on the left side of The Training Ground.


Nuts and cams to 3 inches. Bring some sling to extend the pro under the roof.
