Access Issue: June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure Details


Can't remember much except that it was desperate. Dennis Horning had bolted this line but failed to climb it and offered me the FA. 7/4/99 I did it after Dean Brault had fallen off.

Scrubby and I did this route in '01 or '02 not knowing anything about it. It is actually a very good line. I would give it 3 stars for its sustained cool movement. Lots of stemming and layaways (as DT generic as that sounds, its one of the only fully bolted lines of its style and grade). It was not very clean then (actually quite dirty) but if climbed/cleaned more it would be a trade route. It is way better quality than Buckspeck which is exciting in its own right. That goes without saying...So many of the harder (11c and up) routes at the tower just do not get climbed any more and therefore get silty and/or overgrown, sometimes in a matter of one season.

This is a cool line with tenuous and sustained stemming for 100+ feet. Bring a wire brush and watch out for holds that may break! Jun 1, 2009
