Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


Above the cave that defines the crag is a corridor. Just inside the corridor is a faint, wandering crack below a great handcrack that starts 30 feet up. Climb the face and thin crack (suspect rock quality) to reach the handcrack. Follow perfect hands to the top.

Rap 90' from bolt anchors on Sofa Kingdom just to the right.


To #3 Camalot.

On 6/20, I led this up to the supposed "great" hand crack, which was defined by a dolphin-shaped, dolphin-sized block that angles up the the left and appears to be unattached to anything but gravity. It looked scarier than what I'd already climbed, so I avoided it and continued straight up, through the excellent arete finish of Couch Potato (10-).

The lower section (5.8) is loose and covered with moss and flaky lichen. I worked for and placed about seven pieces of decent pro, burying small cams as deep as possible into crumbly "cracks." Not for the 5.8 leader.
