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

Description 

This line frees the first few meters of Arch Enemy and joins The Orangutan at the second bolt.The Bonobo is a bit spicier than its neighbor, but the crux of both routes immediately follows the second bolt; the sequence is tenuous, powerful, and balance-y.

This is an aesthetic line with flowy dynamic and high tension movement on fingerlocks, crimps, knobs and one amazing thumbdercling.

Location 

Start on Arch Enemy with a dynamic unprotected boulder problem (jug to jug) and follow the seam until it begins to veer right. Join The Orangutan at the second bolt.

Protection 

Gear is three pieces (purple mastercam, purple/blue offset mastercam, and blue alien) followed by two bolts. All of the gear is a bit finicky to place, with the first and third placements being bomber and the offset placement being quite shallow, though it seems good.
