Seasonal Raptor Closure Details


This route climbs the middle of the west face (gorge side) between the 2 newer mixed lines. Exact line is somewhat lost to obscurity, but I believe it a face/seam (stopper) up to a left trending corner, then up the wall to the top. I'm posting it here for the sake of posterity and to reduce the chances of accidental retrobolting in the future.

Thomas Kelly's "The climber's guide to NC" describes climbing up to a good stopper placement and then continuing to the top on overhanging rock and minimal pro.


Middle of the west face.


Light rack?
