2015 Raptor Closure at Bridge Creek Wall area MORE INFO >>>


Previously called "The Original Route" this stunning corner crack will test all of your skills and take all of your gear. Layback, stem, face climb, and jam your way up to the crux at the very end. Good steming just before the top will allow you to work out the cruxy overhanging moves to get up over the lip and to the chains.


This route follows up the main corner crack in the left facing dihedral of the wall.


The route will take gear to 3", but gear to 2" will probably suffice. Bring lots of gear because this route is long with extra finger size pieces needed for the end.

The pitch is quite long if you belay from directly downhill of the dihedral. 70m rope came in handy, especially on the descent. Full value!

Stunning line thats very intimidating from the base. Second pitch is a 11a finger crack followed by some 10- liebacking into a fun finger traverse and up a slab that leads you to the top. Also a great pitch! Bring small gear, two ropes and/or a bunch of long slings, the second pitch is longer then it would seem. I ran out of runners and had one rope, and paid the price with some horrendous drag. Full value!

save a green camalot for the crux, and most importantly DO THE SECOND PITCH!!!!! It is awesome.

I used a number #4 to protect the top section, though maybe could do it without…will have to go back.

I was here yesterday for some mid-February climbing, who would have known...

This is the second time I have done this pitch and still just as good. Unfortunately I forgot how to handle the crux and blew the final mantle-ish move the anchors. I would recommend a blue c4 (3") at the very very top if you are a bit concerned about doing the same thing. Took a nice swing into thin air.

The second pitch was too dirty to climb. Next time will have to bring the brush...

Just climbed this yesterday and it was great. The second pitch is clean enough to climb and also very fun. I lost my hat and it got stuck in a tree. It is a brightly colored Patagonia hat if you want to return it.

The 1st 15' of the 2nd pitch is dirty, but after that it's perfect. once above the lichen, climb the right side of the obvious flake (crux) to a nice right facing corner. the corner peters out and a tips traverse to the left appears (mental crux). do your good deed for the season and bring a brush for the first 15'. watch the rope drag. agreed, great pitch!!
