Access Issue: Seasonal raptor closure for some areas in the Sandias Details


This route starts up Cry for Merlin and after the second crux of that route, which puts you on the arete, heads back out onto the face and climbs through the obvious overlap past an extra bolt or two and another harder crux sequence. That can subcum to some weak jessery.

This was the original intended line of Cry for Merlin, though the climbing does natually deposit you at the base of the easy corner, this variation is still an appealing line.
