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 2: Climb past 2 more hangerless bolts (crux), pass a hueco that takes a #3 camalot, and belay on a nice ledge off of cams. 70' 5.9-.
Walk up the ridge to the "natural boullard" anchor.
Pitch 3: Continue to the summit, passing a pin drilled pin, and some sandy rock. Summit anchor consisted of a stopper and a slung horn. 50'(from the bollard) 5.7.
We linked pitches 1 and 2 with little drag.
Descent: Do one long rappel down the east face off the natural bollard.
