The right splitter.

Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Start up the lichen steps to the base of the right crack. Good gear can be had before committing to get into the wide pod. The surrounding rock is rotten-ish, but the gear is in good rock.

Continue up the crack until you can stem back left. Stem between the cracks until you reach the obvious ledge. A bomber belay can be had with a 0.5, 0.75, and 1.

P2. 5.9. Hand traverse into the corner, and climb straight up. Hidden cracks allow safe passage to the top.

Currently there are two fixed nuts I left to rap off of. Do a single rope (70m) rap back to ground.


As you approach the Bishop from The Dome, you pass right under this.


Doubles blue Alien to #3. A #4 is optional.

We found an old sling used as a rap anchor. There are a couple options to get to the top of this thing, so I'd be interested if someone has done this.
