Nate moving past the first bolt.

Seasonal Raptor Closures January 1- July 31st MORE INFO >>>


Start just right of She's a moaner. Climb up a short corner to a good stance. Clip a bolt and power up the crack on good holds. Reach a bolt and then the anchor. Good route and climbing.


Small gear plus a few quickdraws will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

One hard pull at the bolt establishes you in the crack/ corner. Fun and easy climbing above with good gear.

Would only rate this at 5.7, but the steepness could put it into the 5.8- range, I guess. I was only able to get a black Metolius in about 10 feet above the first bolt, then ran it out 20 feet or so to the second bolt. Easy, easy climbing after the first move, and you can access the routes on either side (9+ and 10+) from the anchors via TR. Well worth doing. Also be careful pulling your rope if it's a bit windy, it'll fall into a thin rope-sucking crack as it comes down, then you'll be climbing it again for the retrieval.

The top crux move at the last bolt was 5.9.

A soft touch, which makes a pleasant change. UK grade would be VS 4b with a bit of a run-out up the easy flakes higher up.

One of the flakes on the route is hollow sounding.

Another one is just the right width to wedge your rope - be careful.

"The top crux move at the last bolt was 5.9."

This move is not 5.9. Easier.
