The route. Dihedral to rap bolts.

Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Climb up a dark dihedral until you reach a bulge. Work up a solid crack and pull over the bulge on great, juggy holds. This is a great climb! Don't miss it.


The far Right side of the Short Cliff. Climb a black dihedral just left of a roof. The roof has a sport route with 3 bolts, called Swimming in Ignorance, leading into the middle of it. Look for the rap bolts at the top of this climb and the fixed, yellow cam.


Pro to rap bolts. Has a fixed, yellow cam about 3/4 of the way up that you can easily see from the ground.

Good route, intimidating crux at the top. Small gear worked best, didn't see any fixed cam.
