Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>


A unique experience. After tiptoeing past the bottom 20ft of "shattered rubble"(stick clip highly recomended as I think you could spend all day pulling 10 lb to 50 lb chunks out of the start), the rock turns solid as you enter a long section of liebacking. At the end of the lieback make a long reach to another crack system, this is potentially the hardest move on a redpoint burn. The technical crux comes higher, after a complete rest on the flake move up and right to good huecos just below the roof, clip the last bolt and find a good pocket out left and finish it out.


High in the Shipwreck Gully, Directly left of Tsunami


8 bolts, stick clip.

onsighted up to the last bolt on this thing then was baffled. tried many times and couldn't pull the finishing moves. Maybe I was missing something. But the bottom is pretty solid now and the whole thing is really awesome!
