Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details


Face climb straight up a few feet left of the CF route, joining the CF route at the anchor. One has to fiddle with getting in pro in the seam below and right of the first bolt.

Move up and slightly left from the first bolt onto a thin flake, then move back right.

The crux is just above the 2nd bolt, where you move right into a short corner and grab the top of the corner. Then it is relatively easy to the anchor.

You can easily set up a toprope by first climbing the CF route.


Between Tilt and CF route, closer to the latter.


Small wires and cams protect below the first bolt, though it looks tricky making a solid placement. Then clip two bolts to the top.

A clean, fun, athletic face route. Also, it is easy to set up a TR on this one. The only downside is that it is short. Aug 13, 2013
FA John Tetzlaff, on gear. Jun 16, 2015
Hey doug what's up with the name... huh ;D Aug 26, 2015
Sorry it took 2 years to reply to this. KdavR is just a little wordplay on Cadaver and the "K" naming of K Cliff. The only possible "cadaver" would have been Tetzlaff on his "ground-up" ascent of the climb, pre-bolts. Fortunately, JT is still Alive-and-Crushing and bolts were installed to protect any sections not protectable with gear. Apr 26, 2017
