Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock Details


First bolt is 20+ feet from the ground, so protect the beginning with a cam, or stick clip the first bolt.

Stem the crack at the start of the route, and follow up to fun slabs under the overhang.


Just to the left of the big black wet streak, look for the bolt above a broken crack system.


7 bolts. Optional cam before first bolt.

I enjoyed this climb, but think it's worth mentioning that reaching the 3rd bolt is pretty scary, so if you are timid, don't scare yourself leading this.
Agreed that you can use a cam for the start, as well as above for supleMental gear. Feb 21, 2014

I'd recommend a #1 camalot for the cam.

This whole crag is still pretty dirty- but the climbing is pretty good. Hopefully traffic will help this place clean up! Jun 3, 2013
