Description

This route was bolted old style from hooks when needed and are pretty far apart by today's standards. The route is steep enough however that you will probably be fine if you took a long one. The crux sections have bolts right where you want them so the odds of falling a long way are slim. The climb wanders around and goes past the anchors for Rantin' and Raven. Use these for the second rap to the ground. Remember the route may wander a bit to get to the next bolt.

Location

Drop down the left/east side of the Ravens. When you reach the chimney next to the long overhanging orange face of Raven D climb through 5.2 to the other side. This route starts up the left facing dihedral on the right just as you exit the chimney. Two single rope raps get you down.

Protection

11 bolts to chain anchors.

Definitely approach by going down to the start of El Curvo and cutting through the chimney to the other side. Don't go down the right side of the ravens (past Hot Shot) and climb up to the ledge like I did unless you want to do Luke Slingwalker or one of those 1 pitch variations below.
Do MOMO, If You Bolt It, and El Curvo for three super long and fun pitches! Sep 23, 2010

Goldilocks bolt spacing, with one waist-height @ the crux. Fun climbing on some large crystals. Jul 24, 2008
