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 climbing starts off with a few pods and tight tips, eventually becoming impossible. The plaque says .12+, and it felt damn hard to me. I would love to hear from the FAist, or anyone who has Houdini-ed this thing. The gear protecting the crux is the smallest possible, and the moves are very perplexing. After the crux there is a substantial but easy runout amongst some choss to the anchor. I replaced the ancient draws with two of my own. Good luck!
