Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

Yet another retro-bolted crack climb. This climb follows a nice finger crack for most of it's length, and then moves right at the top to join the anchors for Thursday Knights. Fun moves and good pro!

Location 

The obvious crack just left of Thursday Knights.

Protection 

5 bolts (all within a foot or two of an excellent crack) to 2 bolt anchor, OR a selection of finger sized pieces. There are many excellent nut placements.

Agreed that there are definitely a lot of good nut placement opportunities. The final moves are pretty exposed but a lot of fun (epic finger locks).
