RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures. They occur annually in the spring.
3 pitch bolted route (sparse) up the SW ridge. Absolutely amazing 100% free-hanging rappel down through the amphitheater! Need two 50m ropes for the rap (or a 70m will reach the ground once weighted). Some groups use this rapel to establish a rope swing. Beware rattlesnakes at the base of the climb!
P1: Five bolts to a 2-bolt belay
P2: Six bolts to a 2-bolt belay
P3: Straight up for three bolt to a 2-bolt belay, there is at least 1 other bolt to the right, other options may exist.
Rappel anchor is ~15 feet down from the top. Either walk down or use bolts at top to rap or belay someone down to the rap anchors. A single 70m rope will just reach the ground.
