2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch Details

Description

The flake just R or Strange Boar, sharing the same start. Listed in Sky Valley Rock and in the old Clint Cummins guide. Re-cleaned and top anchor replaced Feb/Mar 2012. Rated 10b in most guides, but the hollowness of the flake just below the anchors will give many leaders pause. Tread lightly as you pull the final roof, or bypass this with a couple delicate moves up chickenheads to the left.

Variation (Pork Fried Rice): 10c *** Continue past the anchors to join Strange Boar after its crux. An exciting and varied pitch.

Location

Shares a starting belay with Strange Boar. See Baby Tapir for overview photo.

Protection

Light rack to 3", including thin cams for the start.
With permission from the FA, 2 bolts have been added next to the unprotectable guillotine flake. Sep 30, 2016
The flake didn't feel too hollow to me. I avoided the downward pointing trianglular tip (it definitely sounded hollow), but the rest seemed solid. Jul 16, 2015

I think you're right, Geoff. I dropped it down a notch. Mar 21, 2015

I am not particularly strong and I think it is 10b, however i am tall so maybe it's hieght dependent.

Nice laybacking up a thin crack that widens to hands at the top.
It's short, but as it doesn't have any good rests (except a little stemming at the bottom), it will work your arms and fingers.

Also, the rock is really rough, so you might want to tape up your hands. Mar 26, 2012
