RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures. They occur annually in the spring.
P1: straightforward 5.11
P2: tricky off the start, sustained. Place pro after you use the pin scars otherwise it will be much harder 5.12 or E6.
P3: tricky off the belay as well,sustained 5.12 or E6 (P2, P3 and P8 are the most sustained climbing)
P4: The roof- a good fingerlock between the fixed tricams leads to a hard mantle. Easy climbing follows with poor pro. 5.12 E5
P5: Flaring chimney that you can protect with a #4 5.10
P6: Traverse around the duck 5.3
P7: Pinscar boulder problem in the mud seam leads to easy climbing, then a tricky mantle. Good pro the entire pitch 12d (the BP felt V6-7 to us)
P8: Strange blobs lead to a few hard moves on slopers and bad feet. Continue left in the crack to good rock. 5.12+ Good updated bolts and exposure make this pitch one of the best
P9: Scramble to the summit 5.4
After working sundevil chimney I realized the rock on finger of fate is actually pretty dang solid with a light dusking of choss or sand on top.
