June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Wow! A lead of this rig would be very impressive. 150' of non-stop, hard stemming up the flared chute. Having many #5 and #6 HB Rp's would be helpful. The more desperate climbing is in the first half. Catch a decent rest at the 1/4" buttonhead, halfway up, then place gear in the left crack after that. A second pitch continues off the hanging belay for another 140', goes at 11a, and takes more hand size gear.


One of the many chutes in the center of the Durrance Approach wall. Right in between Blue Stem Skyway and Graeme's Line. 80m rope barely makes it down.


All the small nuts you can gather. Preferably offset.
Cams up .4 & a single #1 (for the 1st pitch)
Probably a standard double rack for the 2nd pitch.
One 1/4" buttonhead
3/8" bolted anchor, in fair condition
