Contemplating the twin cracks.

Reduced Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


This has fun climbing along an intermittent crack-seam, with positive face holds. We thought the lower crux was as hard as the upper boulder problem, and the route seemed about 5.10d overall (staying out of the upper crack). You can place a bomber small wire at the start if the traverse to the first bolt spooks you.


QDs, #3 or 4 nut for start.

Solid climbing with a tricky twin crack in the middle. Enjoyable warm up for Protege!

Stellar little climb! Really interesting movement, awesome rock, and well bolted. I'd say 5.10c sounds about right. All the lines at this crag seemed a little soft but are all more than worth doing. Great job on the lines, y'all!
