Seasonal Raptor Closures.

Description 

Fun climbing that starts out easy in a small vertical open book with a crack and ample holds. At the top of the open book move right and get ready for the business! Ascend the overhanging corner/finger-crack above to the anchors.


Location 

Open book a few feet right of the flying circus.


Protection 

6 bolts + a 2 bolt anchor.

This is another route that originally went on gear and was subsequently retro-bolted. Lots of opportunity for good gear in the initial open book, with some potential for more creative placements up higher...
