Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details


This route makes a nice warm-up for the adjacent 11s and helps round the wall out as a quick destination.

The first few moves are the crux. Once established on the wall above the initial bulge, the remaining 4 bolts of climbing is 5.9ish.

At the last two bolts, one can contrive another 5.10 crux by staying left of the arĂȘte or use holds on and right of the arĂȘte for an easier finish.


It is the next bolted route left of New Saigon on the west face of The Hand.


6 protection bolts and a 2 bolt anchor with rings.
