Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

Climb the first pitch of Rip Van Winkle and set up a belay right below a horizontal crack splitting the wall with medium cams and stoppers. Traverse right along the break, then straight up the thin seam. Surmounting the roofs is the crux, but the crack above is continuously difficult until it meets back up with RVW. Step back right and hand or foot traverse the diagonal crack back right with fun moves to the top.

Location

This route is on the upper SE face of Sunshine Wall, right of the upper pitch of Rip Van Winkle. Climb to the saddle between SS wall and face via many alternatives or hike around the back side. Climb up the first pitch of RVW and belay on the lower ledge below an obvious horizontal crack splitting the wall.

Protection

Riders on the Storm has two fixed nuts and two pins through the crux roofs. The rest of the pitch takes two sets of RP's and double cams to 1"(.5 Camalot). Larger cams(up to #3) are helpful for the first pitch and for the belays.
