Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


A fantastic sustained exercise in technical corner climbing, the Professor will not fail to educate you. This route does not get the travel it deserves.

An in-your-face start leads to easier climbing until you gain the corner proper. A tricky sequence leads to a small rest at the undercling rail. From here sustained, technical, and difficult climbing leads to a final sting in the tail to reach the anchor.

A proud onsite.


The left side of the Booty Wall at the right hand side of the often wet cave/hole.


9 protection bolts and a two bolt rap anchor

To avoid a cross-loading situation the second bolt is intended to be clipped with only a biner at the end of the equipped chain draw.

A proud onsite indeed. Not that I'd know. Relentless and technical power stemming. 4 stars despite some occasionally flaky rock.

I thought that getting past the under-cling with the long reach to bad holds and invisible feet was going to be the crux. But no. It is just unrelenting.

A seriously good pitch. With nice new bolts thanks to Greg this should be on any 5.11 climber's ticklist.
