Check for current Raptor closure conditions at:
There are currently four lines on the obvious, overhanging, tiger-striped wall that contains "Namaste." From left to right these are:
1/2 Route: 5.10d and much shorter.
Huecos Rancheros: 5.12c and the longest, most amazing looking line.
[: 5.12c a long jug haul to a cruxy finish
Namaste: 5.11d and the steepest line.
Unknown Project: Only a few bolts on this one thus far.
Huecos Rancheros is an amazing line. Follow 11 bolts up very steep, ultra positive holds to a large hueco. Rest here and then reach up and clip; the crux is getting past bolts #12 and #13 where the huecos shrink dramatically in size, things get sequential, and the wall continues to overhang like crazy!
Two ropes to descend, a single 70m won't do it. The rap puts you an astonishing 50' away from the start of the climb.
