Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

Fun jammin! Sandy Epeldi's book describes this as "the best jam crack in the area." The crack starts about 15 off the deck and there isn't much for pro before that.

Watch for nested owls after the roof at the end of the crack.

Location 

The obvious straight-in jam crack about 2/3 the way from the left end of the wall.

Protection 

standard rack to rap hangers. You may be able to protect the final moves to reach the crack with a micro-nut.

CONDITION REPORT 
There were owls nested on this route as of last weekend (4/23/11). Probably best to avoid it for now.

Takes larger pro (.75 - 3) C4s. Starts out at .75 and gradually widens to #3 by the time you reach the top. It's a very nice looking crack but completely full of bird shit, feathers, dead creatures etc that is constantly falling in your face and raining down on your belayer. If not for this, I would give it 3 stars at least.
