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- Start 30' left of Fine Jade on the Rectory. You will see a bolt about 20' off the ground, which is the crux of pitch one. Climb past the bolt to lower angle terrain. Build an anchor at the base of the double cracks directly in front of you. 5.11- 50'
P2- Climb up the FUN double cracks sticking primarily to the right crack. At about 25', step and reach right to gain the crack 5' right. Continue up this crack until the crack peters out at a sloping ledge with lots of face features. Place whatever gear you can, and move right across the face 10' until you gain the crack out right, again. Gain the ledge for a two bolt belay. Pitch 1 and 2 can be linked for a 200+ foot pitch. 5.10
P3- Continue around a small roof, then into 10-15 feet of thoughtful 10+ climbing. YOu will soon come to the bolted belay of Fine Jade, just below the sandy 5.9 pitch. You can either belay here for a short pitch, or continue will very manageable rope drag up the bolts below the sundeck belay. 100' 5.10+
Climb the last pitch of Fine Jade, up the brilliant calcite bolted face. 5.11
