Seasonal Raptor Closure 2016 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A decent mid-5.10. While not a particularly inspiring line it's not too bad either.

It's on the upper (right) end of the wall, just to the left of the obvious overhang.

Protection 

6 bolts to a bolted anchor

Not quite a turd to me, but certainly inescapably awkward.

not a turd at all….The bulge is pumpy and sequency, after that a little thin and tricky. The last couple of moves are a bit dirty, but still, i would almost consider this a classic; plus the afternoon breeze on the shipwreck wall is freaking magic.

Awkward. Not much fun.

I agree, it's uneasily awkward between the second and third bolts. Still a few fun moves...at least I liked it.

I found this to be excellent for the grade, in terms of rock quality and thoughtful movement. It's definitely not the average Smith 5.10 of slabby knob climbing.

Fun route - easiest on this part of the wall. Give it a try!

Not a turd, not a classic. Requires some thought & not your typical Smith route (as mentioned earlier). 10b (& fun) when you do it right; 10c if you do it the hard way.
