Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


Easy to protect hand crack leading up to a thin slabby face with 3 well placed bolts.


First route reached at the top of the gully. On the lower wall - the rest of the routes are on the upper wall and reachable from the top of this climb or a scramble to the right.


Standard rack up to 2 inches plus 3 draws. Parts of the crack will take larger gear but it's not needed. The bolted anchor is set well back from the top of the climb (Metolius over-sized rap bolts).
