Constant Current--nice hand jams
Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

Another great Black Cliffs trad climb that demands a variety of crack climbing skills! Start in a corner with sweet double cracks that go from wide hands to fists. After topping out on the column on the left side, get ready for some perfect finger locks. Entertaining face climbing follows all the way to the anchors. Great climb, and a bit of a proud lead for a 5.8.


Location 

The obvious double cracks 20ft right of Barry, Barry.


Protection 

Single rack to 3 inches, with an emphasis on finger sized gear for the second half of the route.

Cruise up the dihedral on nice jams. Pulling over the bulge near the top was a bit heady but well-worth it.

No pro in mid section face climbing, don't fall!
