RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Pitch 1: Climb 20' up a loose crack system, then work into a right facing dihedral. Continue high enough to be able to tension traverse right, into the opposite left facing dihedral, and belay under a roof. 160' Natural belay.
Pitch 2: Continue up the right side of a roof, to gain a clean right facing dihedral, which is followed past two short wide sections, up to a 2 bolt belay. 150'
Pitch 3: The money pitch. Gain the ledge above the anchor, then follow a widening crack out left under a spectacular roof. Once up and over the roof, continue back right to a flat ledge, belay here to avoid rope drag. 45'
Pitch 4: Traverse 15' right to find a crack leading to the top, 25' up. There is a tree 15' back from the ledge to use as an anchor. Then walk 200' or less to the campsite!
For the most part, the rock is really clean, except for the very bottom.
