Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


Start out by scrambling up the dihedral to gain the base of the finger to thin hand crack. Jamb this to the top. The crux section is in the first 15 feet of the crack, above that it is 5.7.


The obvious right leaning slabby handcrack on the right (north) side of the formation.


2 each cams from finger sized to a #2 camalot
50 meter rope

I think we left two silver Black Diamond wiregate draws, with dyneema dogbone slings at the base of this route on June 28. Any chance someone found them? I'd be happy to pay for the shipping.
