Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Climb the corner and finger crack to the large ledge at mid-route. A series of positive but well spaced edges will take you the rest of the way to the anchors.


50 feet left of Bologna Pony. The name of the route is spray-painted at its base.


A finger sized piece or two to get you to the top of the ledge at midheight, and then a #0 TCU or equivalent for the horizontal 8 feet above the ledge. From there you have 3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

There are just 2 bolts on the upper face. Some of the best rock at the cliffs that I've been on. It's a shame it doesn't go on for longer.
