Access Issue: June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

A steep, clean finger crack in a dihedral with a short thin section requiring tip-locks or a big reach. The walls of the corner are smooth and largely devoid of features, making for some committing stemming. At about 2/3 height, Manifest Destiny traverses into this corner and the crack widens to fists with some chockstone moves interspersed. This line doesn't seem to receive much traffic, but stays surprisingly clean.

Location

Between POTC and Manifest Destiny on the right side of the SW face. Two cracks left of the Leaning Column on Durrance.

Protection

Finger cams (blue-orange TCU with emphasis on yellow) and stoppers. 2 #3 camalots and maybe a new #4 for the top wider bit.

This route and the ones around it have morning shade. The routes here, Lovely Liana, POTC, Black-Jones, and Manifest Destiny are all close together, can be gotten off of with a single 70 m rope and some 4th class downclimbing, never have traffic, and are high quality. Hang out with the folks lining up for Durrance and make them jealous as you climb pitch after pitch while they sit around. May 10, 2011

Nice finger crack to hands/fists. There are a few chockstones when the crack widens up where care should be taken, but they can be stemmed around. The anchor is shared with Manifest Destiny, 5.9 hands and fists. The anchor is two old rusty bolts with homemade hangers. Jul 24, 2016
