Access Issue: Raven Closure Details
Raven Closure until June 15th: Right side of crag, Priaprism Buttress, closed beginning at the 5.7 "warm-up" route. The rest of cliff open.
Description [Suggest Change]
This is the tight chimney, not quite a squeeze, that is situated about 50' left of the stone staircase on the left side of Africa Buttress. Climb inside the chimney from the base or face climb the outside for the lower half, get in the belly of the beast, and shimmy and thrutch your way to the top. An unusual route for the area and a must do.
Location [Suggest Change]
There are two large roofs at Mormon Hollow. This route climbs the wide crack on the left of the righthand roof (the "Africa Buttress").
Protection [Suggest Change]
There is no gear for the lower half of the route. Above that a single set of cams from 0.5" - 3" will protect in horizontal cracks. The route can be top roped off of trees if the runout is intimidating.
