Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is the middle fingercrack of 3 long lines in the center of the wall. The first pitch is mid 5th and short. The second pitch has no crux but is sustained fingercrack for approximately 150 feet. Probably my favorite pitch of the grade ever.

Location 

The easiest descent if to walk over to climber's right then rap one of the shorter lines on the west side of the wall.

Protection 

Gear to 2" with triples in the 3/4" to 1.5" range.
60 meter rope

Also gets my vote for best 10a crack. A 70m rope will get you back to the big ledge by rapping off the MX anchor. We used a 60m, and did some gear clip in down climbing.
