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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
This slab route starts near the far right side of the blues cliff. The crux comes at the last two bolts on some slippery holds, but there are some hard moves lower down as well. Luckily you get a good rest before the crux. The top is wet occasionally.
This route ends at two obvious chains hanging on the under side of a giant roof. It is just left of an obvious, bolted, left-facing corner climb called Color of Pain.
