2016 Raptor Closures Details

Description

The best pitches are 3 and 4, maybe 2 of the best in the canyon!? Pitch 3 is a long, sporty face pitch with like 10 bolts, and pitch 4 is a mixed rope stretcher.

The rest of the route is chossy like that end of the canyon tends to be.

Location

Approach in Echo Canyon, and descend past North Shore route to the river. See the topo....

Protection

Double cams to #3, nuts, etc., and 1 - #4 cam also.

There are lots of bolts for a Black route for sure.

Great route and one of the more enjoyable for the grade in the canyon. I disagree that it's chossy. I climbed it directly underneath another party and never felt in danger or got hit by anything. Even the pitches marked "scary" were enjoyable and took good pro - more so than many other routes in The Black. You can also leave several draws behind. Quit making excuses, and just go do it. You won't be disappointed. Oct 17, 2016

Now there is a second rap anchor off of the island topout, so leave the tag at home. A 70m is needed! Oct 14, 2015
