Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Start up a right leaning large flake and into the off-width crack with a smaller crack next to it for protection. The crux comes high after the corner widens.


left of the only real bolted line in the textbooks (chalkboard). look for a crack that you can walk into.


The book says gear to 2.5" but I used no larger than 1" and only one cam. It eats nuts. Rap anchors on top.

You will not use gear larger than 1" on this climb, unless you have at least a #5. Very much an off-width climb.

There are now bolts with D rings at the top of this climb. I found this one pretty challenging for a 5.7, but I'm no offwidth expert.

No offwidth technique required for this one in my opinion, given that you can stem between the two cracks.
