Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Fun climb on the black rock to the right of Made in Japan.

Take some draws and enjoy this route. I forget where the crux was. I have also seen this route go on natural pro, but it seemed like dicey crap in some of the flakes.

Location 

50' right of Made in Japan, off some ledge systems. Fun climbing and a good warmup for the harder routes on Space Wall.

Lower/rap.

Protection 

5 bolts, anchors.

Kind of wierd moves at fourth bolt.

Really nice climb. Getting to the first bolt is at first scary given the jagged rock below, but once you see how many feet there are soon enough you are on-belay. Middle area has a subtle chest squeeze, but with a bit of feet work you are at the next positive hold moving quickly up to the next bolt.

The crux is definitely at the last bolt before the anchors where I found it easiest to do a boulderly side pulls on an arete with a high left foot smearing. If you reach around the arete on the inside you'll find positive holds to sink into and pull yourself up and over.

Well protected.
