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.

P1. Start in the incipient groove 20' left of the start of Fat City and face climb the groove until you can step left and clip the first bolt. This section is hairy and can be protected if you're good with Tri-cams and RPs. Climb up the bolt line to the 2-bolt belay.
P2. Another incipient groove takes you up to the top of The "44" crack. Cross it to the roof, step down and left until you can haul over the roof on good holds. Face climb up (hard) to a left angling groove, or dike, and head left to belay in the first crack system you come to.
P3. Step right and face climb up a buttress to its top. It's easier than it looks; similar, and close to, High Plains Drifter. Head up toward the Wilie's Way dihedral and set up a bely when your rope gets tight.
P4. Climb Willie's Way (10+) and keep going and belay at the base of the steep headwall.
P5. Climb the headwall, climbing through the two square roofs on their right sides. Mantle onto the summit.
