Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

Just North of the spire there is a wide recessed chimney on the main wall. Set up a top rope and grovel up the chimney which may be a squeeze for bigger people.

Protection

There's a single bolt above the climb on the cliff top to help set it up. Back this up with some gear.

Fun crack, maybe more like 5.8 (no where near as hard as Licorice Stick, for instance). Good place to practice heel-toe jams. Mar 17, 2010

Wow, fun offwidth.
Lots of places to latch on to. Definitely used some of the face holds available. Stick an arm and leg in, and go for it!
Maybe the rating of 5.9 is a little aggressive, I don't usually make a 5.9 onsight but made this one on top rope. Probably in the 5.8 range somewhere.
More like a chimney at the top, but a great workout after work on a the first week of daylight savings time. Bueno. Mar 18, 2010
