Me on Pabst Smear. Chris took this pic from East C...
Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

Technical and sustained palming, smearing, and stemming. Don't underestimate the finish, this route doesn't let up until you are at the anchor!

Apparently this route originally went on gear and was subsequently retro-bolted. Without the bolts the pro looked like it would be very thin and tricky! What a bold FA!


Location 

The bolted line between the two obvious offwidths.


Protection 

6 bolts to 2 rap hangers

Super fun and sustained stemming that doesn't let up til the top. It's well protected once you make that first clip.
