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.
Alternatively, one can continue climbing past this second pin to the base of the roof. This is a much better stance (ledge) and likely how the pitch was originally climbed. However, to back up the lone drilled pin, which is bomber, one would have to carry a #5 all the way to the top of the pitch...
P2 60ft: A really fun pitch. #5 c4 roof to clean offwidth corner above. Belay at another modern bolt, backed up with a yellow alien - .5 sized piece in the crack.
P3: Find the path of least resistance to the top. Up and left seemed to work pretty well for us.
Rappel from any of the established rap routes.
