RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Pitch 2 This is the money pitch. Carefully work your way out to the first bolt on the corner of the tower. You can get some manky gear at your feet but its best not to fall before the first bolt. Continue working up and around the tower on superb face climbing protected by bolts. When you get to the opposite corner of the tower follow a rising crack that leads to a vertical fistcrack and the summit. Watch for rope drag on this pitch. (5.10)
1 two rope rappel from bolts on the summit to the ground on the back side of the tower. (It is possible to rap this with one 60 meter rope though you may have to downclimb a little of the 4th class approach.)
