Description

10 feet of 5.6 bouldering gets you to the belay ledge. A little funky at the bottom getting to the first bolt. About 20 feet of traversing right leads to some fantastic airy face climbing. It is 140 feet long so you will have to belay from above.

Location

Approach the same as If You Bolt It They Will Come. Start from the ledge 10 feet above and behind the start of If You Bolt It... Climb up then traverse right following bolts to skyline covered with quartz crystal knobs. If you go to the summit three single rope raps. If you do the one pitch it takes two raps. The second rap from the summit involves a swing to the right to the anchors next to the chimney. From this rap you can make it to the ledge without stopping at the belay ledge.

Don't be a dumb-ass like me and start up "Ravenous" (with just quickdraws) by mistake.

Mo-Mo starts another 5 or 6 feet climber's right of the cold shut anchor on the ledge. Jul 19, 2008

was that hold that broke off part of a gear placement on 'ravenous?' whatever it was, it ain't no more. Jul 25, 2008

I'm pretty sure I pulled off part of the "pocket for nut" shown on the "Ravenous" topo in the book.

This may have to be updated to "pocket for tricam" in the next version of the book hehe Jul 25, 2008

This route is accessed by going to the east face of the Ravens (opposite of what this climb is on), and going through the chimney between Raven C and D. Aug 14, 2016

Just a couple notes for future MoMoers. This is a really great route, but be prepared to belay from above and have your follower clean the route. Cleaning on rap is not advised due to traversing nature. Also, be ready for a few sporty moves up high. Safe, but not gym bolting to be sure. Long story short: be pretty solid at 5.9+ before committing to this one. Jul 29, 2018
