Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

delicate face climbing past 5 bolts, leftward traverse into fun right facing corner crack, through 2 bulges.The traverse can be made high or low, with the low moves more protected by bolt.

Location

Starts at the level of the 4th pitch of the Regular route and directly left of it.
This is at the level of the broad ledge and large Ponderosa pine tree, also the walk off to the right.

Protection

gear to 2", 5 bolts, mostly finger size gear.
Bolted chain rap anchor.
The older anchor is for the regular route, a better newer anchor above that.

I think the line of least resistance is to traverse leftward when you find the decent crimp handrail on the left; this is the line where the lichen is most worn as well. My partner kept going straight up for a bit, following a crack/seam, and it was harder than .10a with less good pro. Oct 27, 2018
There are yellow jackets in the crack near/above the bolt line. Oct 27, 2018 · Temporary Report
