Access Issue: Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project- Closures in effect as of 1/25/19 Details

Description

This is a great traditional pitch with a variety of good crack moves and good protection, however the anchors are guarded by a perplexing and reachy 5.11 crux involving a hard to see toe divot and a sharp, gravel-filled pinkie jam at the lip...with gear at your feet. Top out before bothering to clip the anchor, then get them more easily from above. For people shorter than 5'8" this crux may feel impossible, and is not recommended. A shorter 5.9 variation of this crack line escapes right with a wide stem to the big ledge and an anchor.

Location

Left of Egypt Air arete.

Protection

Full range of cams. Anchors at top and on ledge.

If you name it, they will cawm.

Just adds a little objective debating to the ascent.
Do you take the Lorax approach or buy into Manifest Destiny...

I am curious tho, did the route get its name from an old nest that was removed or is this a Fait accompli ? Dec 11, 2011
