Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 Details
This area is closed March 15 - June 30 for peregrine falcon nesting.
- ** this route starts 1 pitch up the wall above Main Gate and Charadras etc.
The main feature is a right angling arch/roof 220' off the ground, just down and left from Voodoo Child's crux pitch.
P1) From the ledge system at 120' (belay for Main Gate ,Charadras) follow a chickenheads left of 45' crack system above the ledge. Traverse right (across the crack) when comfortable and up more heads to the base of the arch. Climb the arch (many good stoppers etc) to its end to belay on chickenheads (and a 1" TCU in roof). (150', 5.5)
P2) Climb the steep section above belay then trend left (tying off c-heads) to an vertical area of heads and run rope to its end. Belay on chickenheads. (160-180', easy 5th).
P3) finish off to summit (<100', 4th class)
Combined with Charadras this is a fine easy summit route to get up Rap Rock.
