RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
P1- The same first pitch as Dirty Thirty to the ledge. See that route for description. (5.9+, 70')
P2- Walk left (south) on the large ledge to the left side of the east face where a right-leaning diagonal splitter will be obvious. The crack starts as a tight handcrack with flakes for feet out right, and widens to fists in a flare. Commit to a cruxy layback around the OW ear flake and finish up a strenuous OW on softer rock. Belay on a large ledge; I slung a large block for the belay. (5.11-, 70')
Scramble up to the base of the summit towers and bag any of the summits. Refer to the description of Dirty Thirty for more details about these summits and the descent directions.
