Overhung for the Black Cliffs

Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

Fun climbing that starts out easy in a small vertical open book with a crack and ample holds. At the top of the open book move right and get ready for the business! Ascend the overhanging corner/finger-crack above to the anchors.

Location 

Open book a few feet right of the flying circus.

Protection 

6 bolts + a 2 bolt anchor.

This is another route that originally went on gear and was subsequently retro-bolted. Lots of opportunity for good gear in the initial open book, with some potential for more creative placements up higher...

Crux bulge is very well protected, but shorter folks might have a hard time clipping the last bolt. Great position and one of my favorite climbs at the cliffs!
