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

Description

An old aid line that follows the waterfall up the UTW. P1 is a good alternate to Abraxus to access other UTW climbs like Golden Arch.

P1: Climb through the overhang on fixed pins and brass nuts. Move in to the left crack the leads to a trough. LA or Ball nut is key for 2-ish moves in the trough, as is a large hook. Follow the trough to a thin crack and easier terrain. The crack leads to a long corner. Bust some free moves with wretched rope drag to the anchor on Technicians of the Sacred (bolts)

This pitch has been climbed clean with ballnuts (C2+)

P2: (didn't climb)

Location

Follow the Upper Wall Trail to the main wall. Find the darkened rock that is usually under the waterfall on the UTW. look for a crack with a few fixed pins down low. Scramble up to the first pin and start climbing

Protection

Offset nuts (Brass and Al), offset cams, cams (TCU -#3) hooks, ballnuts or LA's

I freed this route with Sean Leary in August of 2010. By no mean the best route on the UTW but we had a fun outing.

Pitches break down as follows: 5.11d, 5.11b, 5.10, 5.10
