Description

Vertical crack about 50 ft. to left of RR bolts. Small alcove, tricky start to vertical crack section. From the first main ledge head up into right leaning crack to top, past tree and easy climbing. Belay. Descend with single line rap from RR anchors.

The start is crux and the first section of vertical crack has a few hard moves. Easy ground gets you to the crux off width right leaning crack that will remind you of Sedona climbing.

Location

Up the trail, around to the left to the north facing alcove of RR. Past the massive bolted roof and ascend the obvious crack system that leads to the top of the formation. Belay from a comfortable stance on top and then rap off the 2 bolt anchor for the bolted project, Raptor's Roost.

Protection

Doubles to #3, single #4. I didn't use any nuts and probably used about 1 1/2 rack.

Yup, it's right up there for the area. Got Brian on it for our warm up and it was fun to follow him up -- can't believe it's been 2 years! Brings up the point that you have to follow and clean this one as the rap is the free air rap off the wonderful Raptor Roost project anchors (which is ok with a 60 m rope, by the way. Just barely).

My favorite climb at Raptor Ridge. Multiple cruxes and great crack climbing with a great off width move to end. Mar 30, 2014
