Raptor Closures Details


This climb is on the western side of Purgatory Rock. Scramble up to a ledge (class 3) at the base of two parallel cracks. Light of Salvation climbs the left hand crack. Good hands guide you to a ledge halfway up the climb. From the ledge, climb through a pocket of chossy rock (crux) to a perfect hand crack.

Carefully choose your anchor location to avoid the rope feeding directly through the crack. The crack loves to eat ropes on a lower or TR. It's best to have someone follow the route and then rappel off a webbing/chockstone anchor to the north.


A single rack of BD C4 #0.5-3 with an optional double #2.
