Seasonal Raptor Closures Details


Climb Exotic Dancer until able to make an obvious move left into a thin, hanging crack. A finger piece or two is placed while negotiating the crux locks. Once the crack peters out, pass two bolts on a lower angle, but still difficult arete. Nice water sculpted pockets lead to the belay.


In between A Swinging Affair and Exotic Dancer


2 bolts, finger gear for the crux and a few pieces for placing on Exotic Dancer before moving left.


A little dirty, but a very good addition to a stellar little crag, nice work jens. I gave some of the footholds and handholds a little more brushing, hopefully it gets some more traffic. Apr 13, 2015

By "hanging" I mean a crack that is on an overhanging wall, but does not reach the ground. It defines only the middle portion of the route. Mar 31, 2015

Yes, very nice, but what is a "hanging crack"?

Do you mean "overhanging"? Feb 11, 2015

This route looks pretty sweet! I might have to give it a shot next time I get up to that area! Feb 10, 2015
