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


Sustained climbing (bolts) leads to a difficult mantle crux. From here, follow relatively easy cracks (small-ish gear) and flakes upward to a slightly contrived bolt line going to the right. You can alternatively climb the cracks and corners above at this point.

Either way you end up at a bolted anchor up and right.

There's definitely potential for more stuff around here. The crack to the left has been climbed, and there is apparently a slabby seam project on the right.


Behind the Green Door is on it's own to the right of all the other Mid Wall routes. Walk a few minutes along the trail to the UTW until you see a destroyed wooden staircase and a fixed line. The route will be obvious above the trail at this point. If you are approaching from the UTW this will be the first route you see.


8 bolts if you follow the sequence out right at the top. Standard rack with TCUs for the rest.

Bolted anchors at the top.

Route currently has a fixed line (not mine) on it and is clean enough to climb but could use a brushing.

Hey Geoff, the rope isn't mine. I think I remember it being green?

a sure sign of my senility, forgetting ropes all over the place. I just cleaned my rope off of Steel Pulse, it was in good shape after hanging there for 2 years. I had left ropes at a crag I was developing at Exit 38 and they got completely shredded by the wind raking them over the sharp rock.
