Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


You're supposed to move to the right at the roof/bulge at the top to find an anchor, but we went straight over the bulge direct to use the anchor above Othello.


Just to the right of Azog lies a pair of flaring cracks.


There are rap rings to the left and the right of the top of this route, but neither where you'd most want them to reduce rope drag.

The direct finish over the bulge would be... harder.

I went left around the bulge at the top to the anchors for Azog/Othello. It was airy, but no harder than 5.8.

Direct finish up and over the bulge is probably 10-. Can traverse left to the anchor for Azog, or traverse right to the anchor above Two Gentleman's Pneumonia.

The "direct finish" over the bulge IS super fun! Do it, you'll feel better about yourself ;-)
