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.
P2- Head out the TCU roof into mud crack above. Pitch will likely go all free at some point, potentially hard 5.11. Definitely will go all clean on next ascent. End at hanging belay, one new 3/8 by 3.5" bolt added to belay to augment dilapidated anchors/leeper hangers. 60'
P3- Stellar beak/ small gear seam up the vertical to slightly overhanging face. One rivet on pitch, a new rivet was placed adjacent to it. This was the only rivet mentioned in the original topo so the only one replaced. One 3/8 by 3.5" and one 3/8 by 1.5 bolt added to belay to replace old bolts.
P4- Beak seam to great C1 wideness with wild roof moves, one 3/8 by 1.5" bolt added to anchor. There were rivets on this pitch not mentioned in the original topo, so none were replaced and are old and moderately suspect.
P5- Easy free climbing leads to summit.
