When closed, the closures include the named rock formations and the areas surrounding the base of the formation. This includes all climbing routes, outcroppings, cliffs, faces, ascent and descent routes, and climber's access trails to the formation.
Areas not listed are presumed to be open. These closures will be lifted or extended as conditions dictate.

The route is rated 5.11a, but I should mention that it felt harder to me than any other 5.11 I've done at Lumpy (including Howling at the Wind and Living Dead, both .11b, and Stretch Marks and Little Twin Owls' Finger Crack, .11a).
From the ledge atop this pitch, either scramble carefully off right (rope?) and join the standard descent from the Cave Exit. Or, continue to the summit, via moderate terrain or the excellent 5.10c final pitch of Outlander, about 10-15 feet left.
