Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure: Upper Cheeks Details
Please do not climb in the area shown here until approximately July 15, 2019. This includes climbs in the Black Sea area of the Upper Cheeks. The Perverse Traverse is open to reach the Beach area, but if any defensive behavior is observed, climbers should leave the surrounding area & report activity: firstname.lastname@example.org. Big thanks to WDFW and the climbers who are assisting with the Index Volunteer Raptor Monitoring Program this year, and to Patagonia & Feathered Friends for additional support of the Newhalem and Index raptor programs!
This is a pitch with cruxes stacked on top each other all the way to the belay. One can find a good rest before each crux. Very cool face pitch.
Keep hiking past Centerfold up hill and shortly you will see the bolted line. If you don't continue up to HBFG you can just thread the chains and lower. Can't remember if a 60m will work but a 70m is pretty much the standard these days.
