Climbing the lower section of Circumciser

Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Climb this basalt column to the top. I find the crux to be the top part of the climb while others find it to be the bottom part of the climb. The route is well protected and fun!


Take the trail to the Tall Cliffs and it will be on your left. There is a short column block right in front of it.


Six bolts to chains.

Fun route. Crux for me was definitely the roof at the top.

Also, after pulling the roof, a small cam (gold C3 IIRC) makes the final moves to the chains more secure. But even without the cam, it's a clean fall and not runout.

The roof is well protected and the falls are great. It's very blocky and positive, but can be tricky to figure out. I flailed for awhile, getting pumped, before going for a ride. Once you unlock the moves, it's easy to go back and send.

The book I have shows the 1st bolt down low, but it's quite high. I followed the chalked holds off right, or you could try left of the bolts. Straight up the bolt line seems improbable, or at least harder than 10b/c.
