Access Issue: The Novel Coronavirus & 2020 Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

A lesser-done Index classic with lots of variety. There are multiple 5.10 sections, with stemming, slabbing, and crack climbing, all separated by rests. From the anchor atop Slow Children, step left and stem up toward a bolt, roof, and slab. Atop the slab, a hard v-slot move gains a large left-facing corner and more stemming, leading left (with gear) to a stance beneath the large roof. Pull the bolted roof (crux?) and follow a finger and hand crack to anchors atop the lower town wall.

Adding this to the 3 pitches below makes for a great stretch of climbing with each pitch ~ 2 letter grades harder than the one before.

This pitch should get done a lot more, and it needs the traffic to keep it clean.

You can rappel from atop this pitch all the way to the ground with a single 70m by going back down each pitch. If you have a single 60m, do one short rap to rappeler's left, then a second one to the top of Slow Children, then rap Slow Children, P2 City Park, and Godzilla individually.

Location

This takes the line above/left of the anchor atop Slow Children, and pulls a roof obviously visible from the railroad tracks.

Protection

Bring a lot of runners and draws, ~10 or so at least.

A single set of cams to #2 and a few wires (you'd likely have these to have arrived 3pitches up) is fine.
