RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Follow the ramp to a squeeze around a giant flake(the crux) to the summit. The final move over the lip is very awkward and is easily overcome by pulling on a cam
This is an exciting route with some good exposure and a lot of moderate climbing peppered with some fun moments of groveling. Definitely lives up to it's name
The only anchors are at the bottom of the flake pitch.
Walk off heading down river keeping close to the canyon rim. Make your way down some easy slabs then head away from the river for a couple hundred yards. At some point there is a break in the small cliff band that lets you down to the lower level. Follow this down to the river and back to your car.
It is best to take only what you are using on the route to the base so you don't have to go after your pack and shoes later.
