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.
We climbed a left facing corner system in the middle of the West side. Climb up past loose rock over some bulges, placing gear whenever possible. Climb on to the top and head 30' left to the true summit on sandy rock. I had a sit belay with a couple bad cams backing me up on the top. (It was dark, there might be a better anchor that I didn't find)
Protect your second as best as possible but a "what ever you do don't fall now" moment is likely.
We did a counterbalance simul rappel with a 60m rope to get off.
