Luke Childers saving his life via surfing.... FA ...

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


The only route on the left side (top side) of the wave formation. Crux between the first and second bolt leads to easier fun climbing up the slab to the anchors.


This is just left and around the corner from Warchild. Belay from the left end of the fixed line.


6 bolts, 2-bolt anchor w/rings.

Well, it turns out that some folks have taken all my draws that I had left on this line after making my FA of the line!!!! If any know where my draws may have gone, I would like them to be returned. No harm, no foul, if whoever took then will come forth and makes arrangments by contacting me for a prompt return. I took lots of time and money to put up these lines for the enjoyment of all just to have my gear taken. I hope that the party responsible do the right thing.... Thanks.

That just sucks beyond belief. I'm no fan of draws being left behind, but said remover could have contacted you, left them at the base of the rock, or just left 'em alone. Thanks for your efforts, I'm looking forward to checking this area out.

My draws have been returned.... Not what I was expecting, as my draws were simply put back on the route from which they where taken. And promptly as well. Thank you for whoever you are for the quick and descent response. It's evidence that mountain project is a powerful form of communication and May years ago I had draws take for a line I had just put up in C.C.C. but all I could do is complain to my friends. Now, all issues stand a chance of being resolved and the over community feel more tight knit that ever before. Again, thanks for not just ignoring my request and stepping up to the plate. Thanks to all those who added comments as I feel that they surely made an impact.
