Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

Start up the lichen steps to the base of the right crack. Good gear can be had before committing to get into the wide pod. The surrounding rock is rotten-ish, but the gear is in good rock.

Continue up the crack until you can stem back left. Stem between the cracks until you reach the obvious ledge. A bomber belay can be had with a 0.5, 0.75, and 1.

P2. 5.9. Hand traverse into the corner, and climb straight up. Hidden cracks allow safe passage to the top.

Currently there are two fixed nuts I left to rap off of. Do a single rope (70m) rap back to ground.

Location

As you approach the Bishop from The Dome, you pass right under this.

Protection

Doubles blue Alien to #3. A #4 is optional.

We found an old sling used as a rap anchor. There are a couple options to get to the top of this thing, so I'd be interested if someone has done this. Aug 13, 2016
