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.
P1- Start in some kind of loose rock protected by a bolt about 10 feet up. Then climb the first tier of the roof through a thin hands slot to some huge jugs. Then climb the next 10 foot roof with fists to a 5.10 offwidth above. The belay is bolted. 5.11
P2- Climb a 5.10 offwidth/squeeze through a weird loose flake. After the flake the crack splits. Go left to a small ledge. Climb up and left from there through some very scary loose rock to an unprotected 5.8 corner above to a two bolt belay on a big ledge just below the summit.
Scramble to the summit and downclimb (one hard move off the ledge.
Descent- Rappel the route in one 60 meter rappel or two shorter ones.
This route has a few sections of really bad rock, but for the most part is excellent. The 20 foot roof on the first pitch is great!
