Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

P1= Layback up the flake to a bolt on the left face. Face climb past the bolt (crux) to the top of the flake. Wander up and left past one more bolt to a bolted belay. 130 feet.
P2= Climb straight up past two bolts and some creative gear placements to the fabulous Party Bowl feature. Continue up or rap from here.
Historical note since the current NC guide is slightly incorrect: Shane lead and I belayed the first pitch in a driving rain storm while Mark was working on pitch two. Mark and I finished it up later.

Location

From the approach trail go left looking for a nice right facing layback flake, left of New Creatures, right of Tadpole In The Party bowl.

Protection

several bolts, small gear to #3? camalot.

Tom- from the first bolt, trend up and left to the belay. It is not hard. There are new bolts directly above the top of the flake which is Smoke Hole Weiners. It is kinda hard. There are also a couple bolts left of the flake which is a Tadpole Direct, between Sibling and Tadpole. Sep 9, 2009

I would appreciate it if someone would get a picture of the plaque up in the Party Bowl for me. I don't get out that way much any more.
