Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details


Beer Drinkers... starts on the slab to the left of the obvious crack of Arching Way. I gave this an "s" because the first bolt -- an old bolt -- is about 25 feet up, and if you fall you are bound to break something.

This is delicate South Platte slab: balancy, interesting, small. It felt very sustained up to the 3rd bolt, then eases as you head around the corner to the right.


5 or so old bolts. At the last bolt you can run it out to the top or head hard R into the crack of Arching Way and belay at the tree. A #0.75 Camalot will protect this traverse. Walk off left for the first option; 2 rope rap off the tree (slings/rap rings) for the second option - 130 feet.

I think this is a better top rope than a lead. The first bolt is up high, and a fall before clipping it would injure the leader. Some of the bolts are scary, old buttonhead style. They do not look very good. It is easy to walk around to the left and set up a top rope. Aug 12, 2015
