Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

This climb features beautiful double hand cracks that eventually lead up to a roof, which is split in the middle by a crack. In Sandi Epeldi's book the roof is described as "a classic boulder problem in the sky", and I'd have to agree.


Location 

This climb is located roughly in the middle of the East Carbody Canyon wall.


Protection 

This climb is very well protected and will suck up as many nuts and cams as you care to throw into it. There is a two bolt anchor on the comfortable ledge above the roof.

Route can be sewn up all the way. Long runners under the roof definitely are helpful. Throw in a few cams at the roof, find the feet, and pull it! Variety of holds, but the footwork is the tricky part. Probably wise to wear a helmet--hit my noggin a couple of times pulling out onto the roof.
