2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch Details

Description

Ascend the arete on the right of the Aries dihedral. It is relatively short, but still longer than "On the Verge", which lies directly above.

Protection

Has 2 bolts, but bring some small cams, a 3, and a 3.5" cam.

As of May 2016, this route needs some cleaning. Totally overgrown with black lichen. Too bad cause it looks like some cool techy arete climbing. May 8, 2016

The name was Russell's idea.
Thank goodness he suggested it, as our original name was really bad. Sep 28, 2015

This route is not an X/R route. It has been re-bolted and the protection at the top is excellent. A #1 fits in the back of the crack and a #2 fits in the center if you want to double your pleasure. That would be overkill tho!

I would put it an 11a. Start on the roght side of the corner and work your way up to the left side. Finish with a long reach. Scary, but fun. Mar 25, 2013
