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.
Do Not ClimbThe BLM has requested that climbers no longer climb this route for archaeological preservation reasons.
1st route to the right of Jane Fondas, directly left of the "indian ruins". Steep tips liebacking off the deck, to wide fingers liebacking to get to a rest. A strenuous and pumpy 20 feet of climbing. Cop a decent rest then continue up the narrowing corner, until a tricky traverse right to gain a hand crack. Continue to the chains. The only way I can see justification for "10+" is the fact that its a little shorter than some of the other climbs at Battle of the Bulge. Total length of climb is 60-70 feet.
