Entering the crux sequence

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


Climb up the outside of the large flake. The crux is midway up the flake. At the top of the flake, trend up and left to the belay.


Left side of crag, on large flake resting against wall.


Gear needed for the upper half, though the crux section at the bottom is bolted.

Missing hanger on 2nd bolt.

This route probably hadn't been climbed in a while before today. I replaced the second hanger and cleaned the upper half to make it worth it (but the upper bit is still pretty dirty).

It climbs best if you go up the flake (clean) and then left across the top to the splitter hand crack, staying on the arete above (good gear). Stay out of the bushy corner as much as possible.

This route is at least 2 stars in my opinion and lets you hang a top rope on Keith's Crack / Wild Boar.

Fantastic route! The movement on the flake at the start is techy and fun to warmup on. The top doesn't need much protection, and drops in difficulty. Also extremely photogenic ;)
No problems with any of the bolts/hangers.
