2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch Details


The second flake is the crux. Very easy to place gear. Often a choice for first time leaders along with Seniors Citizens in Outer Space which is 200 meters to the left down at Private Idaho.


Middle of Hag Crag.


Recently cleaned with new anchors at the top.


Hag Crack now has new rings on its existing anchor. I also moved the fixed rope from the anchor hanger, to the link attached to the new rings. Thanks for the hardware ASCA! Nov 10, 2017

There are no chains or links on the anchors to rap. Looks like you could walk off to the right following the fixed line but it looks like a PITA. I left a biner there to rap off but will try to bring some chains to install next time I'm in the area unless someone beats me to it. Aug 30, 2017

Hag Crack just got a cleaning.This is a great 5.6 but will take a ongoing effort to keep it clean. Bottom is sufficient but could use a little more love to hold that moss back. Jun 22, 2017
I cleaned all the debris out of the crack yesterday. Get it while it's good! Apr 3, 2016
Climbed this yesterday. Needs cleaning again. I will try and make it back up there soon and clean the rest of it. Fun route in a neat area May 11, 2015
I've cleaned this route thoroughly each of the last two summers. It will need a cleaning at the beginning of each summer to stay climbable. It has new anchors, and is probably the easiest / best / safest beginner lead at Index... if clean.

And no, it is not PG 13 in any way. Apr 7, 2015

That was mysterious about the PG13 bit. Now, no more.

I hope this guy stays clean! Oct 1, 2014

Nothing is PG13 about the route itself... No loose rock, gear anywhere you want it, maybe easier than anything on GNS. PG13 rating may be due to historical dirtiness. As of a few weeks ago it was sparkling clean (and I scraped another few gallons of dirt and pine needles out of the crack to try to keep it that way), but due to its position in the trees and the low angle it looks like it will tend to collect more if people don't keep climbing it.

Haven't been over here yet. What's PG13 about it? Sep 29, 2014
