Raptor Closures Details


Scramble up low angle rock to a (somewhat unnecessary) first bolt on a slab that cannot be seen from the ground. Climb past four more bolts on a band of rotten rock, pull a small overhang on jugs, and arrive at a slab for a no hands rest while trying to figure out how to pull the overhang before the top. Hint: it's the crux, a pretty stiff one too.


This is the middle route on the south facing buttress, between Cutting Out and Under The Knife.


12 bolts plus anchors. The bolt at the crux (10th or 11th bolt) is a bit of a reach for me at 5'7" wing span. If you have shorter wing span, I'd recommend an extendo draw for the crux or be ready to make some hard moves above a good clipping stance just to get the bolt clipped.
