Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>

Description 



Work your way up technical and sustained moves to the "Rest in Peace" before the last bulge. Crimp the dike over the lip and go big...or fall.

Safe fall for the leap; you won't hit dikes on this fella.


Location 

Overhanging face just left of Tombstone Terror.

Start off huge tombstones.

Bolts are very close together, which make for a very safe lead. A few hard moves getting to the bottom of the roof from the 3rd(?) bolt. A few more hard moves getting from the "lip" of the roof to the big dike above. Move/lunge for the dike is definitely height dependent.

Climbed this thing again, did everything up to the roof clean. It's important to add... bottom moves feel solid .11, final "lunge" at the top feels impossible even at 6'4. Absolutely no feet except some depressions in overhanging rock on the right. Definitely not .11d as supertopo suggests.
