Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details


Start in a shallow left-facing corner with a discontinuous thin crack (stemming, 5.10-). Before the corner disappears, at a bolt, follow good edges out and right to the hanging pillar face. The crimps get thinner and the headwall gets steeper the higher you go, with a crux pinch and a stab to a good edge. Juggy edges and a cool mantle finish it off.

Edging shoes help.


Right-hand end of cliff.


~ 7 Bolts; fewer on the FA (gear used). Belay bolts on top. Rap and clean from chain anchor above the bolted route to the left (Spinal Column, 5.10c).
