Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


Successfully escaping the weekend crowds, I led Mike Endicott up this on Aug. 7, 2011. We climbed the leftmost route on the upper-left tier. From the main ledge at the base of V-dihedral, climb a narrow face to left of the V-dihedral, bearing left to the left edge of the face. Continue up right side of arete to where it is blocked by a bulge. Move right under the bulge, then up and right to a ledge. Move right along ledge, then step down to a two-bolt anchor. Belay. The block you are now standing on MOVES!


From the highway, you can see the short arete on the skyline, on the far left of the upper-left tier. Lots of bushes must be whacked (and raspberries injested) during the thrash to the upper-left tier.


SR. I had to fiddle to place decent pro in the less-than-stellar rock. Be sure to protect for the second along the upper traverse.
