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 second bolted line to the right of the tunnel, identifiable by the fixed pin at the start. Follows a discontinuous line of flakes up a steep face. The crux comes about halfway up at a slabby reach move before getting into a juggy flake that leads to easier climbing above. Sustained, fun, thought provoking climbing. It is exposed and dries quickly, and is climbable in low temps.
