Access Issue: Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details

Description

This ascends two pitches up the South-West corner. The line follows an irregular corner system to a head wall near the top.

Belay at the top (trad) and rap due West from the tree. This line was not named for its intrepid climbing but for a close encounter with mountain lion. We hiked within six feet of the cat who had been hiding in a small cave just off the talus field. The lion passed from the growling stage to the hissing stage before we managed to get far enough away to turn around and look. There is something deeply chilling about the red-eyed stare of an angry mountain lion - it just looks lethal. I got my heart rate nicely under control by the following afternoon.

Protection

Standard light rack and a 50 meter rope.
