Seasonal Raptor Closure 2015 - Several Areas MORE INFO >>>


This fine 3 pitch route tops out on the right side of the Picnic Lunch Wall. Most people stop after the first pitch but the increasingly difficult 2nd and 3rd pitches make for a very enjoyable outing.

P1: 5.11b Pockets and knobs up a bolted face. Alternatively, you can start on La Siesta (5.11d) for a slightly more challenging first pitch.

P2: 5.11d More edging and pockets lead up to a final runout traverse.

P3: 5.12c The crux pitch-- climb up the steep final face on a series of very thin pockets.


The far right side of the Picnic Lunch Wall.


Quickdraws, 60m rope for rappelling.
