Description [Suggest Change]

In my opinion this is the finest single pitch Raspberry Rocks has to offer. I have climbed this pitch over 50 times myself. Locate a hand crack about 20' left of Pressure Drop. Climb this handcrack into a "V Slot" then start clipping bolts, move over the roof and start the finger tip liebacking alternating with some stemming. After the seventh bolt move right into an incipient finger and handcrack. At about 80' you will find the anchors. It is possible to climb the second pitch of Weather or Not (5.8 to the summit from this point.

Protection [Suggest Change]

One set of Stoppers, Cams to 3", 12 Quick Draws (It is wise to take a couple of 12" draws for the transition from the last bolt into the crack)

5.11a? I think 10c is an appropriate rating for this route. I can recall a few moves that MIGHT have been 10d, but 11a? I had minimal trouble with this route, and I most certainly don't climb 5.11 easily! Great route, though- go do it! May 23, 2004
