Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

Shake-N-Bake is a Pinnacles classic. Three older bolts bring you to the first anchor which is two old bolts and one new one. It is possible to get a decent nut in before traversing out to the first bolt. The theme here is traversing on okay but not great rock. Challenging for the follower as well as the leader. Pitches two and three offer wonderful "silo" style stemming up a water streak. Rock quality on pitches two and three is good by Pinnacles standards and most of the bolts are newer. Though steep for the grade, decent stemming technique will keep the pump at bay. Two 60 meter ropes will get you down in two raps. Shake-N-Bake earns its "R" rating (on every pitch) but confident 5.10 leaders will find it very enjoyable and never desperate. Check for seasonal closures due to nesting. Climbed 11/27/11

Draws and a few slings. A few nuts (see guidebook recommendations).
