Raven is one of the more obscure routes in the area and does not see a lot of traffic. The start is a little vegetated, but it's not too bad. Climb the dirty corner past a couple of bolts and a pin (back up with a medium stopper). From the pin, make some awkward moves up on to a large, flat ledge and clip the next bolt. Continue straight up the slightly overhanging headwall. The crux is clipping the bolt at the top of the headwall (if you blow the clip, you'll hit the ledge). Mantle through a couple more awkward ledges and then work right to the anchors. Strange climb, but worthwhile.
Raven is located on the right side of 5.8 crag. Scramble up the slope to the top of the formation and look for a climb with six bolts that shoots straight to the top. This is Only a Crow (5.10c) and shares anchors with Raven. Head back down the slope and location a large, dirty corner the heads up and right, with a couple of bolts visible from the ground. Raven starts up the corner.
8 bolts and a pin to Quick Clip anchors.
