Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock Details

Description

This excellent, dead vertical, splitter crack ranges from fingers to thin hands to perfect hands. The climb starts from an enormous ledge halfway up the center part of midnight rock.

Soft at the grade.

Location

You can climb Steven's Pass Motel, Sting, or Wasp to reach the giant ledge.

Protection

Excellent gear the whole way. Gear to 2 inches.

Hi Kerwin,

Tom (Hummerchine) has rapped in from the top. His comments are just above. Ask him -- I'm sure he would give you detailed beta. Oct 15, 2014

Anybody know if you can walk around and approach this pitch by rappelling in? The approach via dead end ledge was beater. Oct 15, 2014

So sad about Paul Boving. I think of him every time on Thin Fingers. May 19, 2014
