Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>


Stout overhanging face a tiny ways left of Star Walls crack. Some funky sidepulls give way to sustained edging and a long move to a horizontal rail.

Pump out right on the rail to Star Wall Crack anchors...or continue for the 13d extention "Steep Climb Named Desire"...


Start off a boulder a few feet left of Star Walls crack.

There's a no-hands KB at the 3rd bolt. You may want to exploit it...


Usually fixed down to the first draw or two...

Great climb - true to its rating. Haven't got the RP yet, but it's great to work on as all the draws are fixed. The entire 2nd half of the climb is the most difficult - the last move to the anchors might be the physical crux.

Extremely classic movement. If you're in the area, you have to do this climb!

This route is all time, but way soft for 13a, more like 5.12+ Classic steep edges on granite.
