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.
This line runs up the recessed vertical portion of the Wicked Crag, between the two giant overhanging features.
Starts up a slab that quickly rears up to a vertical face. Ultra thin, bouldery moves lead through the first 5 bolts to a height of about 40 feet.The thin section is well-protected and the clips are quite reasonable considering how thin the climbing is.
After the 5th bolt, the climbing eases up, but things remain dicey - 5.11 moves lead up through a 10 foot runout to the 6th bolt.Then 11-/10+ moves lead through similar runouts to the anchor. The line keeps you engaged and (in my case) pumped all the way to the anchors.
