Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure: Upper Cheeks Details

Description

Textbook Index face climbing leads to some trickery before a good stance at the entrance of the knee bar/flare on Numbah 10.

This short variation offers a more straight forward start to both Numbah 10 as well as Amandla, avoiding the dreaded shoulder wrenching pterodactyl move on Numbah 10 as well as all the associated ambiguity over the grade. 

Location

Leave the ground on the Iron Horse flake then follow bolts left to join Numbah 10 at the 5th bolt where it's possible to enter the flare on that route.  Continue following bolts as for Numbah 10.

The topo shows the route ending on a currently closed project. The original finish to numbah ten goes straight up where that line veers left. Mar 26, 2019

Fortunately, Stiggles, in the real world there is a super obvious bolted double anchor and dashed yellow lines misleading hapless climbers onto your unfinished proj don't actually exist.

Hmmmmm...painted color-coded lines demarcating routes and their variations IRL. Go. Mar 26, 2019

Also there are bolts where cheeseburgers are indicated. Very disappointing. Mar 27, 2019
