RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
The name is a spoof on the International Affair theme, and a tip of the hat to the Bill Murray movie. It's also kind of a jab at myself, seeing as how I added this route right in the middle of everything at Supercrack Buttress. Interpret it how you will. I drilled all three protection bolts and the anchor on lead, from the ground up. Although it's short, it packs some engaging climbing like its neighbor.
Delicate and powerful climbing with tiny gear brings you to a stance at the first bolt. From there, wild chimneying and stemming, and one more bouldery sequence lead to the anchor.
