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

Description 

A great route with solid gear. Most of the route is simple laybacking, jamming, and jug hauling, with only a few tricky moves at the start.

Watts recommends moving right to anchors, but the anchors to the left worked for us, and were chains instead of ratty slings. Also, we had the chance to tr Levitate, which is worth a few minutes of your time.

Location 

Left of Little Wing, and right of Levitate in the Star Wall area. Perhaps most recognizable for the heavily chalked triangular-blocky hold about ten or fifteen feet up in the corner.

Protection 

Mostly thin gear, but there are a couple spots for cams up to 1 - 1.5". Overprotect the start: it's the crux, and it would be easy to botch and groundfall without careful gear placement.

Fun route, with interesting laybacking through two sections.

The pro at the start is definitely a bit weird, but sfew. I put a yellow alien the first flared pocket. A small step up and I got a perfect HB offset (#6 I think) in the pinch. Then all good from there.

Route doesn't take anything bigger than a #1 camalot (I placed two)... but it does take as many red camalots/orange mastercams as you can throw at it.
