At the roof.

Reduced Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


This route is very well bolted and is a good climb for a new leader or those who are height challenged. Thin, delicate climbing starts the route but the crux is pulling the roof. Fun!


This is the second bolted line from the left and has more bolts than any other route on the crag.


Many bolts. "Rampart Range Rocks" says it has 11 bolts, but we had 12 draws and ended up with a few left over. Bring 10 draws and you should be OK.
