Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Begins as a great hand crack with ample feet for easy placements. The crack peters out up top and leaves a thin, slabby face to the left and a steep face with chains above to the right.


Hand crack located a couple columns climbers left of Copperhead.


Hand crack eats up BD ones and twos. Smaller gear up top as you can find it. The bottom of the seam has some nice places to slot some small stoppers. This make the moves to the next finger sized pro a bit more comforting.

A 4 star hand crack to a zero star slab finish. Hand crack is beautiful and takes #1s, #2s, and #3s. Then you get on a 5.10 slab and try to finish with only a few tiny stoppers below your feet for protection. No thanks. This route could really use a bolt right there IMO.

I wish I'd read the description before I started up this thing...I would have brought some small gear. I clipped the bolts on the climb to the left, and that seemed okay. The crack was cruiser, the slab definitely the crux, but it was all enjoyable.
