Raptor Closure Details
Closed from Feb 1 to July 31 to protect nesting raptors.
DescriptionGo up a short hand crack in a right facing corner for about 10-15 feet, then crank up into an OW crack that moves up and right with a roof. Watch out for a couple loose flakes when moving into the wider crack. The OW is steep, and looks intimidating, but is only about 15 feet long. There is a nice lieback rail inside the crack, and a couple of knee-locks that keep it feeling like 5.9. It protected well with a #4 Camalot at a constriction in the crack. Above the crack, is a chockstone with a perfect #0.5 cam/red Alien slot. Continue another 20 feet or so to the summit, and belay from hand-sized gear.
This pitch climbs the north-west face of the box, and begins from the same block as Aunt Jennifer's Tigers. It starts about five feet to the left of that route, and goes up the obvious corner. It could be possible to mistake the 1st pitch of Stone Love (5.7, also a fun pitch) for this route, but, that route is more on the southwest face.
Descent: from the summit of the box, downclimb the east face through a fist crack (5.2?) for about 30-40 feet to a notch where you can continue on a ramp to the NW, and back to the base of the climb. With a traverse from the top of the climbing, you can also rig a TR on Aunt Jennifer's Tigers, or Fact of a Door Frame.
