Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


It starts in a right-facing dihedral just to the left of Way of the Wizard. The crux moves are in the first ten feet just off this ledge. Move a bit right and gain an obvious crack system with two small pine trees. Go to the anchors on Way of the Wizard.

It is possible that this start is the same as Way of the Lizard; however, this line follows the obvious crack system above. It is unlikely this start would be confused as a 5.7.


This lies about twenty feet to the left of Way of the Wizard.


Standard rack.

Richard Rossiter has done a climb called "Way of the Lizard" that is 15 feet left of "Way of the Wizard"; see

Is Two in the Bush a distinct line that is different from Way of the Lizard?

The crux moves at the bottom are not very protectable, but the rest of the route has good gear. It is best as a top rope.
