Raging Raptor -Brian Cooper

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


Fun crimping from the start leads to easier climbing before the first crux midway up the route. The final crux comes at the roof near the end.


Route is immediately right of Flesh and Blood at the far left side of the "Left of the Roof Area"


15 bolts to double ring anchors

No real hard moves to this climb, it is just fighting the PUMP at the end.I would say that there are about 3 crux area to this route, with the first one passing the third bolt, 2nd one moving from 9th to 10th bolt, and then passing over the bulge at the end...and again dealing with the PUMP!!

A 70m rope is recommended on this route. We used a 70 and had about 15-20 feet of rope on the ground after lowering off. Would be really close with a 60m. The route appears to be a little longer than 100 feet.
