Me on Pabst Smear. Chris took this pic from across...

Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Technical and sustained palming, smearing, and stemming. Don't underestimate the finish, this route doesn't let up until you are at the anchor!

Apparently this route originally went on gear and was subsequently retro-bolted. Without the bolts the pro looked like it would be very thin and tricky! What a bold FA!


The bolted line between the two obvious offwidths.


6 bolts to 2 rap hangers

Super fun and sustained stemming that doesn't let up til the top. It's well protected once you make that first clip.

Like the man says...great stemming and nicely bolted. Or try it with wires and small gear.

Very fun! My first lead climb!! This seems to be one of the better bolted climbs in the area. Save some gas for that last big move.

Well bolted. I cowardly fiddled a couple of nuts in between some of the bolts. Probably unnecessary, but it gives one appreciation for how much more difficult it would have been on gear.
