Access Issue: 2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch Details


P1 - 5.10c Climb Lamplighter to the first pitch anchors of Heavens Gate.

P2 - 5.11- Break left into a corner with blue lichen. Juggy climbing leads to a boulder problem before the anchors.

P3 - 5.10 Climb straight above the belay following sustained side pull and crimps. Easier gear climbing leads to the belay.

P4 - 5.11- A long pitch of flawless face climbing.


Starts on Lamplighter. From the first pitch of Heavens Gate, break left at an obvious small corner.


14 Draws single rack to 1". Single rack to 3" for Lamplighter. It can be rappelled with a single 70, but due to the traversing nature, it is easier to rappel Heavens Gate.


Wow. Amazing route development. It's like it's always been there. Fun climbing on clean featured stone that looks more like SoCal rock then the UTW. Climate change?

Instant classic alongside Heaven's Gate. Nice work! Jun 8, 2016

Fantastic route , yes, but be ready for minimum 11c climbing. A couple of pieces of gear can be handy on p3, p4. My trip report: Here Jun 27, 2016

If you don't follow the bolt line on P3 it will feel closer to 5.10+. Go straight up and right after clipping the second to last bolt (I think), then traverse left along a thin rail. Feels like you're off route but that's the only way I could figure it out. Jun 28, 2016

I agree, this is a great route. Pitch 3 & 4 were definitely the money pitches. P2 is real easy climbing then slaps you in the face with a boulder problem you need to have dialed for even a chance to send. My only complaint would be the placement of the first bolt on P4. being that it was 5 feet right of the anchor below some stiff climbing to start the pitch. Gear wise, excluding P1, I placed a red #1 C4 twice and a green .75 C4 once Jul 1, 2016
