Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures & Rockfall Mitigation Project Details

Description

This varied line has everything—chimney stemming, a funky roof pull, cerebral friction climbing, and fun mantels, all capped off by a steep, pumpy, exposed finish. The rock is excellent throughout, with patches of yellow granite reminiscent of El Cap (the entire wall is a great El Cap slab simulator, with similar rock and climbing--techy, balancy and insecure). The crux involves a brief stretch of super burly underclinging against pure foot smears, and some will surely be put off by the faith-in-footwear it requires.

Begin with easy stemming up the short chimney. Head up and right over tiered roofs capped by an awkward and contorted lip pull. Step right around the corner to gain the slab, where a series of enjoyable mantel problems wander up and left, then back right, to reach the base of a diagonaling, flared, and bottoming crack. Balance up this dismal feature until you can reach better holds at the base of the overhanging headwall. Big cranks between jugs lead to the top.

Location

This is the second bolted line from the left on the West Face of the Bunker, beginning up a 15-foot tall chimney and then heading right over tiered roofs.

Protection

9 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.
