Seasonal Raptor Closures.


The crux is near the top. It's a nice climb to a sweet crux. Fall shade until 10am.


Impossible to describe. Get Sandy Epeldi's "Boise Climbs" from the Boise REI or ask a local. (Epeldi put together an excellent guide book - arguably worth buying even if you're only in the area once.)


Four bolts to chains. You can take pro for additional comfort, or do it all trad.

I followed up the 4th bolt on 2 May, the crux is difficult, probably a 5.9+ but since that's my limit I felt skittish trying to lead over that. Looking forward to throwing a tr from the top and doing on that next time.

Takes gear, bit more enjoyable as a trad line.
