RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
P1: 5.10+ Head up blocky terrain into a OW section with face holds around it, continue on hand crack to fixed pin and and a slab move busting left past 1 bolt to a belay stance.30m
P2: 5.10+ Short boulder problem off belay tips piece nice. Continue up and right thin back left on steep terrain couple med sized pieces, Cool bear hug crux. Couple more short cruxs in route to a nice belay ledge.20m
P3: 5.11 Crux of route for many this pitch climbs out the right side of the huge roof feature above. Make a balancey step off boulder into a tips crack, head out roof via hand jams and trad funk! Long runners super nice on first couple pieces. Once at the lip of the roof two options are encountered, first is the easier way, but you need to have your gear trim or you will not fit. Is to enter the bottom of chimney and finish inside. Second choice is lay backing or wedging up out side of chimney not recommended. 20m
P4: 5.10 This pitch is right out of red rocks, make thin face climbing moves in route to a splitter hand crack, once crack finishes make a face move right to a left facing flake crack feature which takes you to the rim! 25m
Make 4 30 meter raps to ground, last rap to ground is a long 30 meter rap. Route starts up a left facing corner system no bolts. Just left of "Sexy Beast" first sport pitch.
