Raptor Closure Details
Closed from Feb 1 to July 31 to protect nesting raptors.
DescriptionThis route starts near the huge overhang on the south side of the Box and considering how steep things are on this side it provides a really simple, although initially dirty, scramble to the summit.
Start at the switch back that gets you closest to the South face, close to the West side of the huge "scoop" of the South face. Climb up and around some huge, pine needle covered boulders, to reach the face just where a neat ramp leads you west and up towards the summit.
Follow the ramp and worm up behind a chockstone as the ramp, now a chimney, reaches the notch between the two summits. To reach the higher summit, scramble up some 50 ft west up a cool finger crack.
Descent - Downclimb the crack (tricky)back to the notch and hike north and the West.
