Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


The beautiful finger/hand crack in the large corner beneath the roof. The most striking line at the cliff. Jam and stem to a fixed anchor beneath the roof. Lower off here, or better yet, make burly moves (5.11) through the roof to a bolted anchor 20' above.

  • *Note: A piton lower off anchor was found about half way up the route on the right side from a previous attempt by an unknown party. It is unknown whether they were attempting the crack or the corner. This was the only sign of previous human traffic at Black Mtn.


A short distance beyond Wild Black.


Standard rack to 3". Larger cams for the roof variation.
