Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

The route starts with fun moves up the wide finger crack and arete. After clipping the second bolt, the crux moves go up and right from the end of the crack. If you figure out the crux don't let up, as there are several delicate slab moves that must still be overcome to gain the anchors. A very engaging climb!

The chimney to the right of the arete is off.

Location 

Starts at a partially detached column about 100 yards right of Bologna Pony.

Protection 

6 bolts to 2-bolt/chain anchor.

The moves to the first bolt are a little thin, but it can be clipped before you start by using the chimney and then downclimbing . . . Also clipping the third bolt can be a bit intimidating as there isn't much of a stance for your feet (although you are hanging from the best jug imaginable).

I've walked past this route forever and finally tried it. Intimidating from the ground but sooooo good!! It's way better than Bologna Pony. Don't miss it!

I liked bologna pony more. The first crux wasn't too hard... and using a heel hook instead of a toe hook on the second crux opens it up like a tin of baked beans... num num num num num :). Cool route but over early.
