Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure: Upper Cheeks Details
Please do not climb in the area shown here until approximately July 15, 2019. This includes climbs in the Black Sea area of the Upper Cheeks. The Perverse Traverse is open to reach the Beach area, but if any defensive behavior is observed, climbers should leave the surrounding area & report activity: firstname.lastname@example.org. Big thanks to WDFW and the climbers who are assisting with the Index Volunteer Raptor Monitoring Program this year, and to Patagonia & Feathered Friends for additional support of the Newhalem and Index raptor programs!
Follows a flake-dihedral system to the left of the giant dihedral. First pitch is strenuous (11b), the second much easier (5.7), and the last one technical (11b).
