Leave My Face Alone

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


This the bolt line that leads up and left from the Zoom anchors. After the lower section, pull a roof (5.10) onto a slab (huge hand- and foot-holds that gradually get smaller), crux is the very last move. Fun moves.


This is the bolt line that leads left off the top of Zoom.


All bolts, 14 including anchors? Give or take a few.

This enjoyable line has received a recent scrubbing (thanks Doug T!) and is ready to go on your ticklist.

The start is juggy fun, followed by a committing roof pull which delivers you onto the steep, uniquely featured face with moves that build in difficulty to an attention-getting finish.

This would be a 4 star route if not for the first half of the pitch (alpine scruff). The Headwall slab is stellar. It has 1 tough clip where it is a little run-out, and a tricky finish.

For the record, this route is longer than 90 feet and a 60m doesn't quite reach. It MIGHT reach with rope stretch, but I didn't test that theory so can't vouch for it. Best just to bring a 70.
