Finishing up the fun slab.

Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


This line provides a nice alternative to the other hard lines on this wall, as it lacks a tedious slab section. Begin on the two best holds on the route and the business begins. Funk your way through a series of slopers and side pulls for the first four bolts (roughly 12b). Then enter the desperate roof sequence. Small shallow pockets couple with a well placed knee scum allow you to gain a small side pull just above the roof (13ish). Extremely delicate half pad crimps for the next two bolts keeps you in doubt till you clip the anchor.


Just to the left of the traversing route "rawhide" near the top of the Prophet wall.
