Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

While exploring this route, we found an old Oyster shell on the belay ledge. I imagine that it was the remainder of a romantic picnic lunch shared by a bold couple 20 years ago.

The crux is a series of lay back moves from the second bolt to past the third. The roof near the top has sharp positive holds and is a grade easier than the crux.

Location

The Oyster Bar is right of PTO and left of Creek Nation. It starts just right of the gully/crack system that PTO crosses.

Protection

9 bolts, chain anchors.
There are enough sharp edges at the lip of the roof that rap descent is probably safer than lowering off.
I really love this route... the roof is super juggy and fun. Between 2nd and 3rd bolt is a little bit of a tricky crux. Sep 6, 2017

Fun line! We got the 2nd ascent after it was freshly bolted. 3rd bolt crux is a neat sequence of (well protected) moves and the roof is a bit of a puzzle too. Thanks, Alan! Sep 26, 2016
