Seasonal Raptor Closure 2015 - Monument Area MORE INFO >>>


This route is a one-sequence wonder that could be considered a bolted boulder problem. Easy moves lead to a tricky sequence pulling around a bulge on big holds. After this, easy arete moves lead to an anchor. Enjoyable moves but the brief difficulties are all over 1/3rd of the way up.

Bolts. Rap Anchors.

"Just bolts"

Do you mean bare hangers?

By Reid Randall
Jul 29, 2013

Fun route, though the crux (boulder-y, within the first few bolts), could be a little spicy if one were to fall whilst/prior to cranking over the vertical section onto the slab finish. Also, as of late June of 2013, the last bolt hanger (prior to the hangers at the top/finish) is missing, which means it is "run out" at the top. However, the last 2/3 of this climb is essentially 5.6 slab, so the missing hanger is not that big of a deal.

This route is a bomb. Huge holds last for three moves through an overhang. Romp up a loose, 4th-class arete to the top, where anchors bolted to the level rock at the top do not have chains and cannot facilitate lowering or rappelling. My partner (a girl) and I both agreed that this route goes at 5.9 at most... if you are desperate enough to do it.

As of 3/26/15, last bolt still has no hanger.

Rope drag was immense. If I ever climb it again, I'll bring my street shoes & walk off from the anchor.

The boulder crank is fun but the scramble above is pointless. This route ought to end with an anchor at the 4th bolt.
