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


Pull off the ground on slightly gritty rock. After a few moves, the rock quality improves and becomes some of the whitest at Index. Several stem and balance cruxes guard the chains. A crux for shorter climbers comes lower and a crux for taller climbers comes higher on the route.


Technically on the Upper Cheeks. This sport route is the bolted line immediately left of Apes and Ballerinas.


8 bolts to chains.
