Access Issue: The Novel Coronavirus & 2020 Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

This is why you started rock climbing. Inspiring roofs, slabs, traverses and exposure rolled into four very different moderate pitches. Everything to test the new 5.10 leader. 
P1  Climb “Behind the Tomb Stone. 5.9

P2 “Rope Eating Mice” Bolts and a couple finger to tight hand size gear placements. Face moves to start into expanding flakes and a high crux. Stop at the first set of anchors NOT the high set of rap rings. 10a/b

P3 “ From the lower belay, make an easy traverse right, up a ramp with optional gear, aiming for an obvious low bolt on an exposed Arete (5.6)  At the bolt match low then make an exposed karate kick to good feet and slap out right to a jug. Follow bolts up exposed terrain minding your feet with a few reachy moves. 10c

P4 This pitch can be seen from the pullout by the river. It’s a fantastic clip up on slabby mantles, high steps and a memorable foot traverse with extraordinary views of Mt Index and the river singing in the background. 10a

The FA team completed the route sans headlamp during an end of season lightning storm 2019.
