Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


This is located on "The Visor" on the right hand side, the second bolted line from the right. Start up a small vertical crack and then reach an easy ledge, which leads to a stemming face, up under a roof and ends at anchors just above a little roof. Look to the left while stepping up to the 4th/5th bolt to ease the difficulty.


6 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.

There is no way this is a 10. I don't lead 10s and had no trouble with this. One more example of inflated ratings in the sport park.

It's 5.10 on the "Sport Park Decimal System".

I agree with the two other comments. Although being a fairly decent is not a 10.

10a if you go straight up at the final headwall; easier if you go left to a good crack.

Mislabeled in the D'Antonio guide. I thought it was 10 if you stay in the bolt line. (And therefore contrived, like many of the other routes here.)

Cleaning the anchor was wickedly hard for someone who isn't tall enough to stand under the roof. Took a lot of one arm pullups, a fireman's belay, and expletives to unweight my PAS and quickdraw. No interest in going through that again! I'd do the climb again as it was short and fun, but my partner will have to clean.
