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


There is a crux at the start and a crux at the finish with continuous athletic 5.10 moves in between.


Start in briar at base of bear's paw and layback right thigh to climb arm. From stance at elbow protect under chin, climb face past old pin to ear and brow. Rap from anchors or climb down hand crack on North side.


3 bolts, 2 or 3 finger-sized pieces (green, purple, gray), fixed pin (seemed sound, hammered and checked 7/11), ring anchors.
