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

Description

Certainly not a classic West Face pitch, but it's close to Fractal and Deli Express and worth a spin if you're over here and looking for one more pitch in that grade range. Tends to be a bit mungy, but much of the route is face climbing so the overgrown crack isn't too big a problem except for gardening out gear. Like most of the face routes on the Tower, the climbing is provocative and creative.

Location

The first seam right of Deli Express on the left side of the West Face. A bolted blunt arete (Loss of Enthusiasm) lies just to the right and shares anchors.

Protection

Small cams and stoppers up to #2 camalot, 2 bolts.

This is a decent face climb. Finding pro can be a little a tricky but the climbing is generally fairly easy where the pro is widely spaced. Worth doing if you're looking to take a quick breather from all the long strenuous cracks. Jul 17, 2009
