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.
This has got to be one of the nicest crimp lines in the area....low start with a horizontal slimper rail on the right side of the obtuse arete. Move more or less straight up the arete, using funky/small/slopey holds to gain the jug above (crux)...then make some fun moves on slimpy edges to reach the shelf. Mantel the shelf, pulling gently (!) on any crimps you might find above it, then enjoy some chossy 5.easy to the top. Go ahead and give yourself a couple extra V points if you're on the shorter side, as setting up for the big move to the jug is likely waaaay harder for you.
There is also an alternate, easier start that traverses in from the right on good crimps (there's a rose move if you're into that sort of thing), which deposits you right at the jug.
I believe I watched the FA, but who knows? lemme know if I'm wrong and I will correct.
