Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


This is the bolted line with black hangers which starts to the right of Rain Delay.

Start under an overlap, 9+, and pop over. Continue up to another overlap, 9+, and work your feet up on slopey holds. Continue up and angle back right to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.


This starts just right of Rain Delay on a line of bolts with black hangers (most of the paint is gone now). It is currently the 5th bolted start from the left on this little buttress.


12 bolts.

The moves from the ground to the little roof 10' up are pretty hard. Much easier after.
