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


This is a pitch with cruxes stacked on top each other all the way to the belay. One can find a good rest before each crux. Very cool face pitch.


Keep hiking past Centerfold up hill and shortly you will see the bolted line. If you don't continue up to HBFG you can just thread the chains and lower. Can't remember if a 60m will work but a 70m is pretty much the standard these days.


I think it's 11 bolts including the two for the anchor. I helped spot the bolts but wasn't there to seal the deal. I drank many dark Spaten beers that day so its kinda foggy. Oh and one more draw for the cam.

Looks great, Derek.

About the # of bolts, the edited Clint topo that you posted here says "14? bolts".

How close is this route's anchor to the Hell Bent anchor?

Thanks for catching that Jon. Its closer to 12. I think it is 9 bolts then two for the anchor and one draw for the cam placement. As soon as one pulls onto the ledge the Hell Bent anchor is like 8 to 10 feet staight ahead. Per scrubed this pitch hanging off the hell bent anchor. Its directly plumb line nearly.

Currently very dirty due to route development in the area. It will likely remain that way for the season until the work above is complete.
