Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>


A few pocket/edge moves lead to some challenging moves involving long reaches between good edges. Near the top, a tricky section pulling though a small bulge on pockets and edges leads to an easy finish. This is a newer route not in the Watt's guide.


Just right of Pack Animal Direct (trad dihedral).


Bolts. Rap Anchor.

You are correct. Nice to see some stars.

I originally rated this .10d cuz it wasn't any harder than Hemp Liberation - LOL!

I liked this route mainly because I felt that it doesn't climb like most of Smith... of course, perhaps I just didn't do it right.
Really good line.

Thankfully it was upgraded... basing ANY 5.10 grade off Hemp Liberation would be a HUGE sandbag!! That thing is ridiculously hard for a "5.10"
