Seasonal Raptor Closures Details


Climb over a couple of bulges to reach the roof and the start of a small, right-facing corner. Make a couple of fun moves getting established and moving out to a jug below the lip. Find the holds over the lip (even if you can't see them!). Pull up, and clip the anchors.

This route is still evolving, with several loose holds.

I enjoyed the movement in the corner and hope it all stays together, but be careful till it cleans up.


The left side of the Graveyard features a short roof. This route climbs the roof via a short, right-facing corner/groove. Begin just a few feet left of The Reaper.

Watch out for cactus!


6 bolts to anchors.

Also, the anchors could use some chain. As currently equipped, there is a bit of rope abrasion when lowering. Feb 4, 2018

A fun little crux once you figure it out, but lowering (especially to clean) is a serious rope-killer. Unless the anchors get moved, it would be smart to lower each time on rappel and clean it on TR. This still might tear your rope up a bit :( Feb 14, 2018

Chains could work on the anchor. It was hard finding a good spot for the anchors, since there is so much fractured rock up there. That’s why they are where they are. I’ll go up there and try to fix the rope abrasion issue sometime soon. Feb 15, 2018
