BETA PHOTO: The Link-Up The rope line is not straight as woul...

Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


A direct link-up (casual corner to crimson corner) was recently added that improves the quality of this line, making it a worthwhile route to do.

Start by climbing about 1/3 of casual corner to a point at which it is possible to move left on the overhanging featured arete with bolts. Climb past the bolts to merge into the upper dihedral of crimson corner. Follow it past a bolt to one last bolt above the crux (out of sight from below). Lower from same anchors on ledge.

If you want to do the origial route consider doing it as 2 short pitches due to rope drag. Directions are as folows:

Climb easier, semi loose terrain to an easy left facing corner (out of sight from ground). At a large hollow block, move right (using the block), traversing under an overhang to a stance at the base of the crimson colored corner. Climb this past a bolt and some cryptic moves to another bolt (shared with Creepy Corner). Finish same as for Creepy Corner at the 2 bolt anchor on the ledge above.


Just right of Creepy Corner


Light rack to #1 camelot for the link-up.

Standard rack for the original start.

I recommend bringing lots of long draws, a small stopper, a .3/.4 sized cam, two .75s, a #1, and a #3. Good pitch.
