Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details


Short route that can be top roped climbing Ordeal. Delicate face left to the corner. It was originally rated 10a, but then upgraded to 10d as many holds have broken off.


Climb the face left to the corner of Ordeal. Straight up to the chain.


The anchor (2bolts with rap rings) is halfway up Ordial. It is visible from the ground.

Having climbed this several times, and having read Brad Young's "Official Corrections To the New Guidebook" on mudncrud.com, this route is no longer 10a, and is at least 10d.

This is of little consequence, since its a top rope. But should be clarified. Dec 21, 2018

Thanks for pointing this out. In fact, from Brad Young page: "30. Correction, page 57 (route 81, “Holiday Ordeal”): A significant number of holds have broken off this route. It is now at least 5.10d." I thought it was a stout climb for being 10a!
I have changed the grade to reflect this . Dec 21, 2018
Hahaha, heh heh heh.

Then there are those of us who got in an early ascent of the route. When it actually was still 10a ;) Dec 21, 2018
