Shae Griffin after pulling the roof.

Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Climb easy basalt until you reach two bolts placed next to eachother (use the one on the right, the one on the left is loose) with a bulge above.


The route is easy to find because the name is scratched into the rock at the base of the climb.


About 6 bolts to chains and one cold shut

This route is in no way PG13. It has two distinct cruxes. The first is technical and comes before the roof as you inch your way up the column with no feet and one crappy fingerlock in the crack. The second is pulling a stout roof but you pull the roof with a bolt right at your waist. More than adequately bolted, although I don't think this goes at 5.10a by any stretch of the imagination.
The route lies between the sport routes Snake Eyes (5.8) and Stemulus (5.11d).

That loose bolt really needs to go. I got suckered into thinking that the roof was an extension (looks that way from the ground), then got up there and found I was wrong. Up to those two bolts is a pleasant, if thin, 5.8
