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.
Pitch two you can go Straight up and make some awkward wide moves into a black, closed book, dihedral. When the corner ends, traverse left 20' to a two bolt belay 5.10. You can also traverse left at the start of pitch two, around a bulge(easy) and climb the next corner over.It has a spicy bit getting into the corner, but is an easier variation.5.9 It ends at the same anchor.
Pitch three climbs a 1.5 to 2 size crack(crux) until it ends in some choss.
Pitch four, Two moves of clean aid and a high step gets you past the choss to an easy traverse that leads to the final corner. 40'
Pitch five climbs staight up a some what loose corner.60'(definitely will want your helmet right here)
