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


Climb a broken pedestal and follow the right slanting seam, largely using face holds with some locks and jams thrown in. The climb gains a small ledge before tackling the crux, a fairly incipient crack that relents to more face climbing shenanigans before a mantle to a large ledge.

The right facing dihedral with a mossy crack leads up from the final ledge to the anchors shared with "Old Guys with the Shakes" and "Radical Right".


Far right side of the crag, one of the first climbs you will encounter and the right most of the climbs on this particular face.


Singles of RPs and some microcams up to 3" will suffice. 2 bolt anchor, no rings or links for rappel, so a low-5th class down climb to climber's right will have to suffice if you want to be stingy (like me).
