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.
2. Struggle over the roof (5.10c/d) then continue more easily up through a 5.8 slot. Angle up and slightly left towards the top, over a couple more 5.10a bulges, to gain a ledge under a right-facing 'V' slot in the final rock band. Hand traverse 15 feet right, then squeeze through the Warm Compress (5.9++) to the summit.
NOTE: on FA, pitch 1 was led (and cleaned of much dirt) with a point of clean aid, freed by second.
Perhaps You Should See A Specialist begins on the north face, thirty feet from the west arete, and heads pretty much directly up the obvious weakness.
Descent: A simul-rap with two 60-meter 9mm ropes from the obvious summit saddle, just behind the west arete.
