Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Another great Face Canyon sport route. Fun stems and thin face moves up the column face on bullet-proof basalt. There is a thought-provoking crux sequence waiting up near the last bolt.

As usual, stay out of the crack left of the column for full value.

Good clips, spaced a little more comfortably than a lot of the other sport routes here. In my opinion, this would be a good first 11 lead.


Toward the right (east) end of Face Canyon. This is the first bolt line left of Dog Face.
Look for a smooth, reddish colored column face with a slight bulge near the top where the last bolt is placed.


5 bolts, chains.
