Seasonal Raptor Closure from Moondance to After the Prick MORE INFO >>>


The crux is a hard move over a small bulge. A high boulder problem with good gear.

Start just left of Bonnie's Roof: climb up to a good horizontal, place good gear in a thin crack and crank off sharp edges and sidepulls to a good bucket and into a short corner. Climb the corner heading left to the arete. Belay at a good stance and then climb easier rock to the woods.


Just left of Bonnie's Roof. Rap after the first pitch or climb to the top in two pitches.

Rappel over Bonnie's Roof or, with one rope, to the right over Ursula.


Small to medium gear. Bigger stoppers protect the crux moves.

This is an often overlooked classic in the area. Great moves, a beautiful wall, and sufficient gear.

The gear is good, and straightforward (not big stoppers) but if your belayer isn't paying attention you could still hit the ledge. I thought this route all came down to one move, but it is a hard move!
