Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


Standard rack with emphasis on small gear despite the large appearance. Make your way up the chimney over various ledges with hidden although solid gear until it is possible to squeeze through a break on the left. Work left and up onto a ridge with small gear. Continue straight up the face through a short but tricky crux on small gear as the angle eventually lowers into a knobby featured slab. End at a chain anchor.


The obvious large chimney about 40 feet from the final logging road.


Gear is a little tricky but it's all there. Emphasis on small cams!

Chain anchors.

NOTE: At least a 60 meter rope is required to toprope although it is possible to rap to the anchors on top of Han Shot First and get to the ground in two rappels if your rope was shorter.

Fun climbing! moves off the flake above the lower anchors are surprisingly good and linked with han shot first would be a quality full length route also.

Did someone steal the biners off the chains or does it need quick links, horrible pull

Someone stole the carabiners. Unfortunately, I won't be back up there until Fall so if someone feels like putting some bigger quick links on there that'd be sweet.
