Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock MORE INFO >>>


Crytogram lies just right of the mossy streak. Pick your way up terrific stone, heading gradually up and left as you hunt around for the good holds. After reaching a bush, break right, enter a shallow v-slot for a few moves, and then a short dash to the anchor. I found entering and exiting the slot to be the crux of the route, but only slightly harder than the remainder of the climb. Consider using a long draw on the bolt before the slot to reduce drag.


First route right of the mossy streak. A 60M rope will be just enough to reach the ground.

Not your typical Leavenworth slab or crack

Fun route. Sustained 5.9.

Note: Around the 6-8 bolt there is a cinder block sized loose rock that's not quite ready to go but is obviously loose, be safe - plenty of other solid rock around it.
