Seasonal Raptor Closure from Moondance to After the Prick MORE INFO >>>


Climb the large, left facing corner for about 30 feet. Just past a small roof there is a thin crack on the right face of the dihedral. Traverse the crack right to the arete (crux), then up this to a threaded rap station. You could continue past this point for more cliombing, but most of the the rock above is absolutely choked with lichen.


At the S turn on the carriage road at the end of the Trapps, head into the woods. Fancy Free is down and right of the Dick's Prick pinnacle.


Several small TCUS, e.g, Metolius OO and 0 for the crux.

Very fun climbing. The corner is mild, but it leads to a deviously thin traverse. It's all there! Threaded rap station was in good shape as of October 2012
