RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Good routes at this cliff include, 'Sabbatical (10+),' 'Bon Voyage (11+),' and others. Only about 1/2 of the routes we saw at this cliff were in the Bloom book (Vol 1) and there is plenty of opportunity for new routes here.
Of the existing routes, there are some which are tall (70M rope required, 2 ropes required, or outright multi-pitch) and there are routes some very short routes of decent quality for IC beginners, though none are terribly easy.
Some of the anchors on this cliff have been under-attended and the webbing has been poor. I replaced several of them, but please consider taking up camo-ed chain or webbing and rapid links to contribute to the maintenance of this area if you visit.
