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.
Free and aid up a crack with sections of loose rock to a ledge about 60' up. From here either 1. belay off big cams 2. continue straight up the wide crack with loose/soft rock to a ledge on your left and a two bolt anchor. 3. climb through the bushy crack on the left to a big ledge, then continue to scramble up and left to the same two bolt anchor. 5.9 C1, 115'
Aid up the obvious splitter crack above the anchor until it peters out. At this point I placed two hand sized cams in the crappy horizontals and half freed and half aided to the left and then back up and right to another splitter crack. Follow this until it ends and start clipping bolts. Follow 9 bolts to the summit. Two of the bolts don't have hangers. 5.8 C2 110'
All bolts are 1/2" and the anchors have chain and won't need tat.
