Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock Details


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.


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


Excellent gear the whole way. Gear to 2 inches.

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

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
