Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


This used to be posted as "Out of the hole project" was recently sent by Aaron Neitzel and given this name.

Starts in a hole in the cave with 3 ways to get to it (see below). Use the underclings and high feet/toe hooks to start in the cave. Move out to the nice edge low on the face out of the cave, find feet to get a far right sidepull on the face.


This is located in the main cave. You can enter by going in the Green Mountain Gringo side and going straight back and down into a hole towards the back right.

Also accessed by walking up past Biscuit. Walk into the cave where these two boulder's meet: (right where the pad in the pic is *this is the best way in and there is plenty of room to squeeze in between the boulders*)

A third option is to hike up past the Bat Cave climb and take a left and find the face that comes out of the cave.


pads, spotters

Wasn't sure if projects are cool to post on here, but this is a sick climb that needs to be done so I wanted to post it. Will try to get better pics next time I'm out there.

I did this boulder problem last night. Thought around 11. Shadows of Reality for the name. Not the best rock quality but fun moves.
