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

Description 

This route has one hard section in the middle of the route. The crux is a tricky sequence in a slight bulge just above a ledge, and a fall at this spot may land you on the ledge. Enjoyable moves here, but oh so short, then on to an easy finish.

Location 

On the far left side of the Testament Slab, right of the chimney/gully, Gothic Cathedral, and just right of the crack line, Old Testament.

Protection 

Bolts. Rap Anchors.

A fun technical sequence above the ledge leads to much easier ground. Seems soft for 10b.

With regards to the route description above; in my experience, falling off at the crux has not been at all problematic. I've belayed someone who fell at the crux and I've done the same. Both falls resulted in the leader going down the left side of the block without any contact. Smooth sailing.
