2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>


A strenuous and sequential boulder problem ends at a fixed point of aid(V7) and guards the start of this long multi-crux pitch. Don't rush!


Climb a short, dirty but unpleasant connector pitch that leaves from the top of the 1st pitch of The Black Sea. Climb up and left through a small over overlap to a large comfortable grassy ledge with a two bolt chain anchor. The route starts on the arete. There is a brass point of aid(the turtle) that marks the end of the bouldery start and the beginning of this long pitch.


bolts. Many. 14-16 maybe...
Single 70' to get off.
Rap Black Sea or top out and walk to Madsen Ledge and climb Good Girls or Technicians for a 7 pitch stack up
