Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


This is located on 'The Chicken Wall' of the 'Clock Tower'. It is the 2nd route from the right of the old industrial bolts. It is a little squeezed with "Wessel In the Chicken Coop". Be careful clipping the first bolt, as there may be bat shit/piss all around. From here, continue up the arete/corner to the anchors. This is a short route but nonetheless a decent route for the intermediate leader. As mentioned, a little squeezed with the route directly right, as you could clip these bolts as well. Enjoy.


5 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.

It felt like a 5.10a to me, but this was right after working a few other problems on the wall, so it was probably fatigue kicking in. Fun route to climb though!

Weird route, not really worth the effort it took to put in the bolts. Still, there were a few good moves and a couple of finger jams. A little zig-zaggy, pretty tough to follow the bolt line. A tad harder than the line to the right, but honestly, it didn't feel like 5.10 to me.

Maybe I did it wrong, but the crux on the bolt line is not 5.10. Both my partner and I wouldn't do it on lead. Instead we traversed right, practically getting onto the Weasel next door as we went around.

Overall, too short, do it if you're stuck waiting for something else.
