Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

Pull through the bouldery start on good hands. Long arms might help. The hardest moves are low. At the diagonal slot, step right onto the rib and finish on lower angle rock.

Location

Start at the right side of the small overhang, before the ramp to Yellow Dog. BCPR is 20 feet right of First Armadillo.

Protection

[9] bolts. This shares the double chain anchor with First Armadillo.

This is now the 3rd route coming in from the right. It is clean, but one should wear a helmet anyway while climbing. The crux is the start. 5.8, way easier than Labby, 5.9-. Apr 7, 2017
Just a heads up that it's very hard to hear your climber when belaying on this route. Apr 3, 2017

As of January 2016, this is the first bolted route you'll encounter on the walk to Other Critters from Doghouse, i.e. it is the rightmost route on Other Critters.

Edited May 2017, two more routes have been added to the right of this route - Old Man Kangaroo and Elephant's Child.

Also, I agree this climb is extremely soft for the grade. The roof on Elephant's Child (5.7) is harder than anything on this climb.

Nothing exfoliating or breaking when I've been up this climb in 2016 and 2017. Feb 1, 2016

I did this route again, and it is definitely not 5.9. It is fun though. Aug 24, 2015

Seems to be cleaning up OK. There's some very small stuff still exfoliating but nothing dangerous (that I found). This was nowhere near 5.9, though. May 27, 2015

Start was crux, tons of loose rock. Wear a helmet. Had multiple holds break on me. Mar 18, 2015

Trends left, so you probably want a second to follow and clean it. Potential swinging otherwise. Mar 7, 2015

I thought this felt easier than the route, "Labby", to the left, which is given 5.9-. The route is fun though and is worth doing if you are at the wall. Dec 24, 2014
