Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure: Upper Cheeks Details
Please do not climb in the area shown here until approximately July 15, 2019. This includes climbs in the Black Sea area of the Upper Cheeks. The Perverse Traverse is open to reach the Beach area, but if any defensive behavior is observed, climbers should leave the surrounding area & report activity: firstname.lastname@example.org. Big thanks to WDFW and the climbers who are assisting with the Index Volunteer Raptor Monitoring Program this year, and to Patagonia & Feathered Friends for additional support of the Newhalem and Index raptor programs!
Climb the beautiful, splitter finger crack (which ends too soon) and mantle onto the ledge above. Continue left across the ledge, then straight up climbing past a few bulges to a stance below a small bulge separating you from the finishing ramps. Pull the bulge and continue up the ramps above to the chains.
