Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Start with standard Black Cliff's stemming between columns, which leads up to a short crux, with a final thoughtful move to the chains. There is some loose rock on the sides of this climb.


On the right side of the Mid Cliffs, right of In Vitro, but before the obvious thin crack of Nikita.


Single set of cams from C3's to gold Camalot, nuts.

Takes nuts really well, nothing bigger than a #2 BD, and even that you could probably get by without.

This route was retro-bolted in the past and I can see why. It has since been chopped but the bolt holes remain. The gear is just not that great on this route; finicky placements and mostly small gear. Enjoyable but definitely would not put a beginner trad leader on this.

Takes cams well and easy Stemming. Last move felt bold. Cannot see chains until you're just below them. Loose rocks on here - careful!
