Access Issue: Raptor Closures Details

Description

The north-facing crag in the gully to the right of Crag Ranch is stacked with 5.10 to low 5.12 routes, many of which require some gear. The dark rock and mossy sections likely put off a lot of climbers, but don't be fooled. The cracks and face holds are clean—at least on the well-traveled routes—and the climbing is excellent. All-day shade makes for a great escape on hot days.

I have to admit, when we got to the base of this wall and looked up at the vertical moss carpet, my first thought was that the guidebook author must have been hitting the electric Koolaid pretty hard when he was doling out the stars. However, it quickly became apparent that there is really good climbing on this wall. Nice variety in the 10 to 12 range, some sport, some gear, some mixed. The rock is ultra-featured, almost to the point that it feels kind of weird to tug on granite this way. Aug 29, 2011
