Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

Excellent crack climb that is sustained and difficult for the grade. Be prepared to jam, finger lock, stem, smear, and maybe employ a little magic to get to the top! This climb starts from the top of a high ledge and not from the ground; it's a pity this isn't longer.

Location 

This climb starts roughly in the middle of the wall off a 20 ft tall ledge. The climbing to the top of the ledge is low 5th class.

Protection 

Single rack to 1". 2 bolt anchor
