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.
P1- Make awkward move up loose handcrack. Continue up sandy crack placing gear when possible to 2 bolt anchor (one bolt is missing hanger- supplement with cam)- 60 ft
P2- Continue up sandy, low angle crack until lieback is encountered. Some large blocks await you at the top, so tread lightly. Try to find some decent gear, than head right on face to 2 bolts leading to anchor. My partner continued up crack above blocks, placed gear, and downclimbed to bolts (Seemed a little safer).-90 ft
We rapped from here, but book mentioned 3rd pitch (did not look too inviting). Anchor on top on P2 is set-up for easy pull after free-hanging rap from arch.
