Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 Details
This area is closed March 15 - June 30 for peregrine falcon nesting.
DescriptionThis description is just for the first pitch, to let the community know that, thanks to the ASCA, the aging bolts have been replaced.
A pretty fun crack and face section down low leads to a mantle under the first bolt that will really get your attention. 2 more bolts with scant but adequate pro in-between lead to a gear anchor on Easy Street ledge and your 2nd pitch options (Orange Slice, Not So Easy Arch, etc.)
The "R" in SQLIII seems to be for the second pitch variation that skirts the Orange Slice (we chose to bail on Easy Arch as it was getting dark; you can continue the 1st pitch past the ledge to the base of that route). I felt like the first pitch was PG13/R, but I think you'd be fine with an attentive belayer.
Note that Storm Crow appears to be the plumb route that takes all its neighbors(Isengard, Rottissima, Charadras, etc.) to the top , but there are safer alternatives for the 2nd pitch.
3rd-5th pitches are your typical "low angle lost in the maw Rap Rock adventure"...We managed to get off in 3.
