Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Start in a chimney, clip a bolt, then make a commiting move out of the chimney on to the face, falling here is not reccomended as you will go swinging back into the chimney. Steep flakes, jugs, and some barn-door arete climbing with bad feet eventually lets up near the very top. Very sustained with multiple cruxes.

As of now, there is only 1 bolt at the anchor.... It's bomber, but it could definitely use another bolt and some chains.


This is on the left side of Sunshine just right of Buckshot on the arete.


1 of each from #1 Camalot to small wires. Couple extra finger size to smaller pieces. 4 bolts total.

I thought this was a challenging, thought-provoking climb that was very sustained. I'd give this route 3 stars if it wasn't for some friable rock throughout the route.

The best way to descend is to simul-rap off both sides of the tower. 1 60m should be long enough. Make sure you run the rope through the ring, so the rope doesn't roll. Glad you had fun on it, Monty; maybe I'll see you up there before the closure.

Thanks out to Kevin Stricker and Dave Russell for replacing the old bolts.

Pretty pumpy. The move out of the chimney was stellar.
Good idea, Patrick.
