Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details


This striking right-facing corner/fingers splitter capped by roof is the landmark feature. It is obvious from the approach to Comic Relief, Cloak & Dagger. Above the splitter is a steep slab with an incipient crack with RPs for pro.

P1: climb P1 of Cloak & Dagger to nice ledge below a pegmatite roof left of Cloak & Dagger corner, 5.9+, 180'.

P2: climb left-leaning chimney/slab to nice ledge below obvious finger crack/ corner capped by rectangular roof, 5.11a, 70'.

P3: ascend a fingers/tips splitter/layback corner passing fixed nuts under roof, pass roof to the right with hands/thin hands. There is a fixed nut belay, 5.11+, 80'.

P4: climb a steep, slabby seam to stance at top of P4 of Comic Relief, 5.12b, 90'.


The obvious fingers splitter/corner is the landmark for this stellar route.


Mostly small stuff, some hands/big hands for chimney, fist crack, and bring RPs for sure.

Pitch 3 is really fun! I didn't have the balls for pitch 4. I escaped by climbing over to the black corner on Comic Relief. Sep 4, 2014

The links to "CR" in this description lead to the Casual Route page instead of Comic Relief. Oct 24, 2014

I'm surprised this route doesn't get more love. It's one of the better low commitment 5.12- routes in the Canyon. The 11+ pitch before the crux is awesome, and the 12- pitch is pretty short lived with some bouldery slab action. The fixed pin is gone, but there is bomber fixed nut now. If you do this route, finishing on Cloacked Interpretation is highly recommended for the ultimate link up on the wall, which we dubbed "Almost Perfect Interpretation". Jul 15, 2017

No fixed pin, no fixed nut on .12 pitch (P4) as of 6/4/18. Awesome crux pitches! Don't slam your belayer on beginning of P4.. Jun 5, 2018
