Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>


You're supposed to move to the right at the roof/bulge at the top to find an anchor, but we went straight over the bulge direct to use the anchor above Othello.


Just to the right of Azog lies a pair of flaring cracks.


There are rap rings to the left and the right of the top of this route, but neither where you'd most want them to reduce rope drag.

The direct finish over the bulge would be... harder.

I went left around the bulge at the top to the anchors for Azog/Othello. It was airy, but no harder than 5.8.
