Raptor Closures Details


Located between the Gastonian and Cornered Rats, The Imposed ascends a shallow, right-facing dihedral to a ledgy area. This is the lower portion of the same ledge used by Cornered Rats and Man Chowder. Either stop at the 2 bolt station & break this into two pitches or continue up the left leaning seam & on through the bulge. This adds another way to access the ledge system on the Red Wall and another more moderate route to this wall.


12 bolts + top & mid-anchor.

Really fun route and quite a bit harder than it looks. My crack climbing definitely felt rusty on this one. Oct 9, 2013
Is this the nice-looking finger crack near the left end of the crag? If so, bummer that someone felt it necessary to fully bolt what would be a G-rated gear lead. I really don't understand this (lack of) ethic.


I'm just referring to the 2nd pitch, which we reached by walking over on the ledge. Didn't do P1. Oct 8, 2010
