Golden Eagle Closures in the Monument Area Feb-Aug Details

Description

This route is a good choice for beginning leaders. The hardest move pulls off the ground and launches into a plethora of holes and ledges all the way to the anchors. Even though it is easy climbing, the ledges that make it easy also make falls bad.

Location

This is the left most route on the massive wall of huecos. It is also the first pitch of Abraxas.

Protection

4 bolts. anchors are way to the right of the fourth bolt.

There is a sort of scary move above the last bolt to get to a place where you can build the anchor. You're about 8 feet right of your last piece and slightly above. Nov 24, 2016
