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


This unusual Lower Gorge route starts with a 10b crack broken up with horizontal seams leading to a rest in a "cave" inset. From here you clip a bolt and then launch into strenuous roof moves leading to the top.

Gear to 2 1/2 inches. One bolt protecting the roof, with additional optional gear placements possible above this.

Easy for 11a if you have reach. If you're shorter than maybe 5'6", could be quite hard. Also, along with On The Road, probably the most on-sightable 11 in the lower gorge.
