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

Description

P1: Climb a fist crack in a corner. The crux is a blocky overhanging section. Belay on a ledge on the right side.

P2: Climb up and right, then follow a left-leaning thin crack through a knobby wall.

Location

On the right side of the Upper Cheeks, about 20 feet right of Upper Zipper.

Protection

Wide pieces for P1, mostly thin pieces for P2. P2 has several fixed pieces.

Beware the choss. Belayer should probably stand off to the side a bit.
There's a bit of chossy rock toward the top. I stood on a particularly solid-looking chunk a few years ago and it ripped out. I came back and rapped it and bashed out some of the choss, but it would take more dechossing efforts to really remove the rockfall danger. Sep 1, 2017

P1 has an anchor on the left side of the route. This confused me, so I kept climbing, linking the two pitches into 1 amazing climb! At the top of the finger crack, traverse right 15' to an anchor with fixed locking carabiniers. Lower to the ground with a 70m rope. Good warmup for the area. Oct 1, 2016
