Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures January 1- July 31st Details

Description [Suggest Change]

I'm really surprised that this route isn't listed here. It's in the "Climbing Colorado" book as an "unnamed 5.9", and I looked through the 9s on the list to see if it has earned a name recently. I didn't see anything that sounded like it, so I'll add it here.

This is a long, thin slab climb. The crux is in the slick start and then climbing the final, very steep slab above a rail and below the anchors. A fellow climber kept yelling at me to clean off my shoes, and that was great advice.

Location [Suggest Change]

The route to the right of Cheril's Peril and left of EZ Street.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bolts on the route and bolted anchors. The pro seemed reasonable on the climb. The anchors are too high for a 60m rap. You can rap to the anchors on EZ Street and then down from there if you have only one rope. A 70m might do the trick, though.

It is possible to use a 60 meter with this route for the rap. I was able to double rope down to a place on the slab where I felt safe enough for the walk off. Oct 25, 2010
