Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! MORE INFO >>>


Thin slippery moves to the first bolt, then easy cruising to the 4th bolt crux. A bit run out after the 4th bolt, but the climbing is easy on huge jugs. The tree has chains for belaying and rapping.


The arete around and to the right of the chemistry slab.


4 bolts

Interesting climb, thin slabby start to first bolt. Cruz After 4th bolt to go over the bulge, don't get suckered into the stuff way right as it pulls you away from your protection.

Do a move on thin feet and crimps to gain a huge juggy flake. Heady on lead, technical on TR.
