Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

This is a nice well protected trad climb that doesn't see much traffic. Unfortunately the climb starts out ledgy and vegetated, but once the real climbings begin, the quality is solid. Climb twin cracks to a hand crack and then a wide pod going out a bulge. Surmounting the bulge is the crux, and will likely lure you into a beached whale position.

Protection 

Gear to #3 Camalot.

Location 

Near the far right end of the Mid Cliffs.
