Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Starts semi-wide with decent cupped jams in deep. Slims down to good hands and intersects with a 1" arcing crack on the left before the final semi-wide section. No mandatory OW technique necessary. Fun jamming.


Immediately right of Mush Maker.


Pro to 4". Chain anchor.

Ha, Yes. I'll second that this makes Inca Roads feel like a 5.7
I could of easily used three #4s for this climb. Still a fun climb though.
