Access Issue: Seasonal Bighorn Sheep Migration Closure Details


Start with straightforward face climbing up the first nine bolts.  From there, three permadraws protect an overhung bird poop infested crack of solid hand jams.  Follow two more permadraws as you lieback and traverse right along a steep ledge/ramp  to the two mussys that make the anchors.  

Note: Just before the anchors, it may be best to avoid trying to get too high of a handhold above the lip.  There seems to be some loose rock that one might pull off onto their belayer.


This route ascends straight up the middle of The Octagon's face into the highest, most central pointed corner of the Octagon's most prominent roof.  This route follows the most aesthetic line possible up this wall - it's a true miracle of a route.  Bushwack your way through trees to situate yourself directly beneath the first bolt.


9 Bolts, 5 permadraws, 2 bolts for anchors w/ mussy's. 70m rope necessary.
