Seasonal Raptor Closure 2012 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

An ultra classic arete with continuous thin technical moves. Originally climbed mostly on the right side, easier but still challenging starting moves on the left-center lead to a thin ledge. From here, the arete and tiny holds provide continuously difficult, technical moves up until just a little ways before the anchors.


Location 

Obvious classic 90 degree arete at the center of the Snake Rock area. See Snake Rock area description.


Protection 

5 bolts. Rap Anchors

All of this route is HARD. This is probably the best route I've ever attempted in my life. It's a short route, but every move until afer the last bolt is solid 5.12. If you're feeling like a solid climber, and you want a crash course in REALLY technical arete, this is the route for you.
