Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details

Description

This is for the semi-obscure aficionados. This is a feature that sees little traffic. This scar in the landscape has yielded a few briefly pleasant, 65-degree-angle slab climbs. Approach via the Mesa Trail from NCAR or Chataqua. There is a faint trail to its base, not too far from the Mesa Trail.

This is the route up the middle of the slab, right of Non-Friction.

Follow small edges up this smooth face past 4 bolts (1/4") to a 2 bolt anchor. The 3rd bolt seemed not very useful. To escape, you can climb 20 feet up to the trees above. You can also belay off trees above.

Protection

4 QDs, screamers useful, 50-60m rope.

This climb might be 5.8 if you zig and zag around to find the most usable features. If you lead it, or climb straight from bolt to bolt on top-rope, it is harder than that -- I would say 5.9+ or 5.10- between the second and third bolts. It is clearly a grade or two harder than the 5.8-rated route "Non-Friction" on the left side of the wall. Oct 4, 2010
Nice little climb with thin handholds and friction moves. Little runout on easy low angle slab. Jun 18, 2009
