2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch Details


Knobs all day! Two distinct cruxes. One for the tall and one for the rest of us.


This Route leaves from the top of the 1st pitch of The Black Sea. Clip a bolt then step down and right around the corner. Follow bolts through KNOBS up and right to a chain anchor.

Two single 70m rope rappels takes you back to the Perverse Traverse.

This is a free hanging rappel. You MUST maintain a swing to get back to the ledge! Tie Knots!


12-14 Quick draws/runners
#2 camalot optional

The knobs on this route will transport you to Tuolumne Meadows for twenty minutes or so. Wild! Jun 6, 2013

Those knobs look amazing. And the route looks nicely bolted. Can't wait to give this one a try. May 13, 2013
