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

Description

P1: A very nice 5.8+ pitch that offers some nice variety. Begin in a low angle crack just to the right of Broken Tree. When the crack thins, step left to the first of several bolts. Belay at the anchors.

P2: This is the business! Eleven quickdraws and a clear head is all you need. The exposure is incredible... and when you rappel from the anchors... WOW!!!

Protection

A set of BD stoppers, 12 quickdraws and a few shoulder length runners will offer exceptional protection.

The column-top belay above the second pitch is one of the coolest and most comfy little stances on the Tower; I sure was glad to roll over onto it after battling up the pitch beneath! Jun 16, 2008
