Description 

North side of Raptor Ridge, this is the namesake area that was what DAS was initially drawn to. A number of long trad lines ascend either side of the fully bolted visionary line, Raptor's Roost, that is still a project. These trad test pieces range from 5.9 to 5.12- and are exceptional examples of LD climbing. It's a shady area and is best saved for the warmer months. The west face routes get later afternoon sun and are shorter.

Getting There 

North side of the area. The trail leads to the base of the west face routes, specifically to Free Flight and Buzzard Bait.

Climbs the better looking vertical crack about 10-15 to the right of Buzzard Bait. Rock quality is better, but there is still some loose stuff. MUCH improved since the last bout of cleaning and the summer rains last year. At the top of the crack move right and locate the bolts protecting somewhat tricky climbing up the arete. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
