Emergency Closure Announced - Resurrection Wall MORE INFO >>>


The start is probably the crux on this one. Climb up just on the left side of the arete passing 3 bolts along the way. Little bit of a mantle move over the last bulge by the anchor. Straightforward.


Far right side/arete of the main right face of the upper crust.


3 bolts and two bolt anchor.

It seems like part of the boulder problem right before the anchor has broken off. VERY committing move to the anchor for 5.5 climbers. I suck at climbing so I'll TR it next time.

Glad I'm not the only one that though so. That mantle is about 5-6 feet above the last bolt once you've committed, so as the wise man once said, "Don't fall!"
