Seasonal Raptor Closure-Lifted MORE INFO >>>


Follows steep ramp up to first bolt high off ground. Enters tricky section with crux located at top of climb. Two bolt anchor (chains attached). Freakishly high first bolt. It was bolted this way due to the fact that there used to be a tree near it that helped you out psychologically.


Three right of Pseudo Hard Men. Starts at steep ramp leading up to high first bolt. Small but easily distingushable bush in middle of ramp.


All bolts.

The crux sequence on this is harder and more sustained than Bongo Fury (.12a) just to the left
