2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>


Follows the prominent crack system on the east face of the Wart. climb from the ground up to the large ledge and follow the crack with great feet to the top. Look for Metolious Enviro rap hangers at the top. The top of the Wart is a fantastic hangout.


East face of the Wart. Can walk down the west gulley or rappel the route.


Standard rack to 3" include additional small cams and nuts.

Seeing the orientation, it looks like it would be good for a morning climb in the cooler months and good as an evening climb in the summer.

It's hard to beat the easy access.

This route is strikes me as a good one for a new leader. It's a jug haul that can be easily protected the entire way by the crack. Very little jamming is required. It also felt significantly easier than any other 5.8 I've climbed at Index.
