Frosty on High Boltage.

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


This nice line follows a pretty face near The Dungeon. This line is the first bolted face on the cliff going north from The Dungeon. Climb up the easy rock leading to the first clip and follow the bolts up various features. Hidden holds appear whenever you need one. This climb ends by flirting with the outside arete.


Four draws to a two bolt anchor. The first bolt is high, but the climbing is relatively easy up to this point. Note: As of 9-18-01 one of the top bolts was missing a hanger. Who does this?

Per Ken McVicker: the top anchor has two bolts, one is over the top. All hangers are in place.

The top anchor has two bolts, one is over the top. Great climb and good holds at all clipping points. All hangers are in place.
