Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock Details


Crytogram lies just right of the mossy streak. Pick your way up terrific stone, heading gradually up and left as you hunt around for the good holds. After reaching a bush, break right, enter a shallow v-slot for a few moves, and then a short dash to the anchor. I found entering and exiting the slot to be the crux of the route, but only slightly harder than the remainder of the climb. Consider using a long draw on the bolt before the slot to reduce drag.


First route right of the mossy streak. A 60M rope will be just enough to reach the ground.

Fun route. Sustained 5.9.

Note: Around the 6-8 bolt there is a cinder block sized loose rock that's not quite ready to go but is obviously loose, be safe - plenty of other solid rock around it. May 18, 2015
