This one will put your ape index to the test! A long and tensiony move gets you onto the steep arete loaded with sinker pockets and wrapper jugs. Exit the arete into dynamic moves spanning the extent of the average climber's reach. When in doubt just launch and know it will be good.
Moves: Pumpy
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Downpour

Freaking brilliant. Shadow put the holds exactly in the right places. Good Work.

Is the seasonal raptor closure sign recent / still in effect? See pic.
J-Ru said on April 19th, 2021
Yes -- this was just put up to protect a pair of nesting barred owls. It will likely come down on or after 7/31/2021.

Thanks - appreciate the response. I thought I had remembered seeing this sign years ago and thought maybe it had just stayed up. Good to know.
