Route 66 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : High Desert : ... : Raven Rocks South

Climb starts on the far right side of the south facing Raven Rocks formation. Thoughtful bolt placements take the edge out of this climb. Fairly sustained for the grade although some may find a discernible crux....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

This wall is in the sun early in the am and is a good place to go on a cold morning to warm up. It is in the sun most of the day untill late afternoon.
