Seasonal Raptor Closures.


The crux is moving over the bulge, after the last bolt, to the anchors. Get creative with your footwork and you will send.

4 bolts to chains.

Great climb. One of my new favorites at the Cliffs. Save some energy for the bulge at the end. It can be pumpy when first learning the beta.

This was the the first 5.10 I ever climbed at the cliffs back when I was first getting outside in high school. It's a good climb. To get over the bulge you need to move from one finger rail to another finger rail, then get your left foot up as high as you can. The tricky part for newer climbers is trusting your fingers.
