Description

This route is the first route you will encounter as you hike the boulderfield to the east, below Weather Watchers Wall. This route is located about 150' left of the southwest corner of Weather Watchers Wall. Locate a large ledge known as "The Toaster", about 80' up from the base of the wall. There are three one pitch routes leading to The Toaster Ledge. This route is the right most. There are a number of bolts on this pitch. The opening moves are quite attention getting up a smooth fin. Make sure to ditch the 2" cam for your first gear, clip the 1st bolt, then place more gear, then clip another bolt, once again place gear, then clip more bolts as you near The Toaster. There are a couple sets of anchors on The Toaster. As with many routes at Raspberry Rocks this one offers great diversity plus offering some very interesting liebacking and face climbing. The overall visual appearance of this climb is quite deceiving and somewhat non-descript for this symetric cleaved crag. A must do pitch. It is possible to climb a second pitch from The Toaster Ledge to the summit.

Dingus McGee's guide rates this route a .9.... I'm more inclined to agree with the .10a shown here. VERY nice route with bolts where you need them... excellent nuts where you want them... and a flavor many must enjoy. Sep 17, 2005
