Raptor Nesting Details
The west side of Window Rock has seasonal bird closure in the spring until June 15th- check for closure signs posted in the parking lot.
DescriptionOn the east side of Window Rock is this obvious line, often climbed, but not listed in the latest Bingham guide. It shares the start (and crux) with Pocket Rocket, stays in the flaring crack until it ends, crosses directly over the horizontal gash/crack about halfway up the route utilizing face holds until a second finger-sized crack is reached. The first 3-4 moves (poor feet) are 5.9, the rest is 5.7-ish. Going from one crack to the other may provide a modest runout if protection cannot be found in the horizontal.
NOTE: If a name is in common use for this climb, let's make that change here.
LocationThis is between the alcove containing Expect No Mercy and the parallel cracks of Good Times and Pure Pleasure on the east side of Window Rock. Descend by walking north along the spacious ledge to rap anchors.
