Description 

Climb a clean face at the bottom to a small ledge and move up and left onto a ramp. Follow the bolt line up the ramp, which steepens with diminishing holds as you approach the roof above. A technical and powerful sequence through the overlaps in the roof leads onto the face above. Enjoy the ride as you continue face climbing up and over right to reach the chains.

Location 

The start is located behind a tree between Crystal Staircase and Witchway Arete.

Protection 

12 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor and chains at the top.

TR Variation
Once the rope is through the anchors, you can top rope the right-facing dihedral just left of the route (and immediately right of Witchway Arete) to gain the big roof, and then follow the roof line (a few moves of mild 5.10) to the crux moves on Riding with the Ravens.
