Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>


Start up the face/seam just left of the arete clipping older looking glue-ins for the first 4 clips. Veer a bit right through some odd polished rock and follow a dike for a bit before gaining the arete.
Once you reach the arete you will be clipping new bolts.
Follow the arete to a Fixe biner anchor.


The East face of Koala has a few newer bolted lines. This route is the arete about 200 yards uphill from the Thin Air area just before the rock becomes very overhanging.

this route, did feel difficult for the grade. it was originally led, mostly on gear.

Hard pitch… felt like I was missing something.
