Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

The route starts on the right side of the rock. A bolt protects the initial slab move up to the small overhang. Exit the overhang to the right and follow four more bolts up the face. The crux is at the fourth bolt where the rock steepens. The climbing here involves small edges and lots of crimpin'. Be careful of the small flake below the 5th bolt. It flexes when pulled on and if it breaks the route will get harder.

Location

This is the rightmost route on the rock. A bolt on the slab identifies the route. Rap or lower from the anchor on top.

Protection

5 bolts and 2 pitons protect the route. Small cams can back up the pins. There is a two bolt anchor at the top.

After clipping bolt #4, you can go left (long reach) or right with a hold or two near the arete (less reachy, more balancy). Near the solstice, the upper half of this tiny buttress is in the sun midday. Dec 18, 2009

It seems easiest to go left of the bolts. Oct 22, 2013
