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


The second free route to be put up on Earwax Wall.

Follows a crack up the face, then goes over roof at right-facing corner, and then follows the crack up and right (crux). Lots of face holds going up to the roof, the crack often just serving as a place for pro. A slight reach at the roof to a sinker hand jam, and then the crack thins out. The hardest part is above the roof.

If the part below the roof is wet, you can climb into the route from the Black Flag route just to the right, joining Domestic at the roof.


Left side of Earwax Wall. Starts on top of left edge of big block resting against the wall.


Gear to 2". Had three fixed pieces. The pins above the roof may be gone, but small cams should work.
