Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure: Upper Cheeks Details
Please do not climb in the area shown here until approximately July 15, 2019. This includes climbs in the Black Sea area of the Upper Cheeks. The Perverse Traverse is open to reach the Beach area, but if any defensive behavior is observed, climbers should leave the surrounding area & report activity: email@example.com. Big thanks to WDFW and the climbers who are assisting with the Index Volunteer Raptor Monitoring Program this year, and to Patagonia & Feathered Friends for additional support of the Newhalem and Index raptor programs!
The obvious handcrack going straight up to the right of the huge eyebolt. Approach as for GNS, Pisces, etc. Goes from tight hands to perfect hands to fists all in the course of 20 feet, then finishes up the beautiful easy crack above. Many people think this is tough for the grade - I've known people who onsight 11 crack to get spanked on this short pitch. Maybe handsize dependent?
