Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details


Lower-angled water streak with smooth features. Kind of like Tuolumne slab climbing -- bolts are sparsely placed. Crux is above fourth bolt.


Follow the Balconies trail from the westside parking lot and cross about five footbridges. Just before the sixth, there will be a climber access sign for the 'Destiny Wall' (Destiny is another name for this route). Turn right and head up a climber's trail. There is a fallen old gray pine near the base which makes a convenient bench.

Descend by rappel.


Four bolts to a two-bolt anchor.


a great route with excellent rock. a nice committing crux above the last bolt Jan 9, 2011

An "R" rating? I didn't think it was that run-out. Well protected by Pinnacles standards. Sep 2, 2012

Not "R", PG-13 MAYBE. Solid rock, great stemming, fun warm-up. I agree with Chinos, crux was above last bolt, adding a little spice! Mar 1, 2015
