Check for current Raptor closure conditions at:
From the end of the canyon overlook trail, head north up slickrock until the reddish rock starts transitioning to white. Follow slickrock ledges out west and contour around. One gully in particular interrupts the ledge - we found it best to descend the gully a bit from our ledge onto red slickrock. Follow the bench around and below some chossy points to a good overlook.
A large gully should be in front of your with red and white slickrock and weaknesses opposing. Pick your way into the gully and descend a couple hundred feet until the base of a small probable looking gully.
Ascend slickrock left of the gully. This can be kinda sketchy with micro route finding. Sticky shoes recommended. Once it tapers off, ascend another gully at the base of the wall. Note the rappel slings in this gully system.
Here, you should see a line of bolts ascending up and left. Follow these for a rope length and a half until the terrain eases.
Drop gear and scramble up. Bypass the final summit block by contouring around the north side to an east weakness.
Descend the route. A single 60 m is fine with several raps or handlines.
