Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock Details


The name of a route may be an encapsulation of the type of climbing encountered or emotions evoked during an ascent. While pulling into the wide crack / chimney at the roof and securing myself with a knee bar, thoughts of being devoured by a unseen entity crept into my mind. Because the crack is quite wide this route may be easier to climb in hiking boots with vibram soles.


Begin in a dihedral just around the corner from a bolted face to crack climb (Twilight Zone) on the Dead End Ledge and continue straight up through the overhanging roof that is left of Easter Overhang. Rappel from the ROTC / Stevens Pass Motel anchors back to the Dead End Ledge in two rappels.


Cams to 5" or Big Bros to supplement the ancient 1/4" bolts with aluminum hangers or steel rings. Cams / medium stoppers are also necessary for an anchor.

FA- Fred Beckey, Eric Bjornstadt, 1962. They used 6"-10" wood blocks in the OW. The 1/4" bolts are theirs, but someone added bolts also. not sure if fixed pin is theirs. Feb 20, 2014
