Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Nesting Closures Details


You can't miss this arete, just left of Darkness At Noon and Heinous Cling (Full). One of the most fun and photogenic routes at Smith (and maybe the whole U.S.). Four bolts lead up the arete, with funky pinching, scumming, crimping and pocket pulling to get through the technical crux between the second and third bolts. The redpoint crux is the sports action throw over the roof at the top, though.


Bolts with anchors at the top.
