2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>


Thin edging, similar to that on Sonic Reducer and Terminal Preppie. Perplexing start - you might want to stick-clip the first bolt.

After the roof, continue up, then either move right to finish on Terminal Preppie, or move left to the chains on Sonic Reducer.


All bolts.

Has this been cleaned recently?

When I lived there I never saw anyone on it and it was always dirty. Never heard of anyone doing it either, though I'm not suggesting it hasn't been repeated. Can anyone comment on the grade? I always thought this had a very high probability of being a classic index sandbag given the FA party.

No cleaning yet, but I hope to clean it soon and try it.

When we did Sonic Reducer and Terminal years ago, I thought this center line would be the best of them all, but never got around to doing it. Yes, it might be a classic sandbag, but certainly worthy of the effort.
