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


Best done as a toprope.

Start on a flake just left of The Zipper. Pull up onto the slab. The crux is a little above the level of the corner on the Zipper P1, after which is a long leadout into groundfall territory. Trend up and right back to the Zipper P1 anchor.


About 20 feet left of The Zipper.


Best scoped out on toprope.

Fun toprope. Years ago, I broke one of the old .25" (button head) bolts at the beginning by tapping the hanger with my foot. The head sheared right off and I recovered the old Leeper hanger at the base. Luckily, I wasn't on lead. This was one of the bolts that 'protect' the crux, although I doubt anyone is lining up to lead this. And to think I've fallen on bolts like that before, not to mention rappelled from them...
