Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


Make some tricky initial moves in a left-facing corner past a bolt to gain the main crack. Patience placing gear will yield good protection. Climb the main crack (pin) to easier but unprotected climbing to the anchor.


The first chunk of substantial rock encountered when hiking in from the steep section of The Long Trail.


I recall mainly small to mid-size pro. Leave a comment if that is inaccurate but it will be obvious from the ground.

Descent: Fixed Anchor rappel station
