Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>


A nice cruise up a well-featured mini-buttress. Start at the toe of the face on the left of the formation. gaining a small sloping ledge a few feet off the ground. Continue up and slightly right, following intermittent, flaring cracks to a steep step (crux). Friction and tension are your friends here; a few more moves and the angle eases. Finish at the anchors shared with "Fine Line."


The route starts 25' to the left of "Fine Line" on a blunt areté. Begin where a shallow, fractured, flaring crack system ascends up and and slightly right.


Cams from .5" to 1.5. Tricky, if any, nut placements. Tricams could possibly work. Owing to potential for tricky gear placements, experience at the grade is probably best for a the leader.

5.6 foot trust. A quicker exit to the summit than walking around.
