Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures & Rockfall Mitigation Project Details

Description

This is a difficult-to-set-up toprope problem that has 2 interesting parts and might be led at a R rating.

There are 2 possible starts. The left start above a bush is a bit reachy for the height-challenged. The right start is noticeably easier. Continue up moderate terrain to the upper double crack system. Start in the left crack and move up and right into the other crack. Unfortunately, the topout doesn't have much for an anchor.

Maybe we could put in a bolted anchor if folks actually found this interesting.

Location

This is left of Seams Thin and goes up to a double crack finish. It is just left of the offwidth of One Rat Too Many.

Protection

We used a funky combo of an okay #4 BD wire at the top of the climb with a long (10') directional off a #1 Camalot and yellow Alien under a boulder to the left and a bomberang type threaded sling under a large boulder after topping out One Rat Too Many.

I thought this was interesting, but I doubt the cliff will ever be popular, so a bolt anchor is not really needed. If this were somewhere like High Wire, it would likely become popular but not here. Sep 20, 2013

Did this route a second time. A lead would be very serious. My top rope anchor was to the right of the top out and consisted of two long slings and a #1 Camalot. The crux is definitely near the top. Dec 4, 2016
