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]
Climb the obvious wide crack up the front of the Central Buttress. Getting off the ground requires tricky footwork or a tree stem before getting to fun laybacking and hand jams over a bulge. Continue up the wide crack, protecting in small horizontals, to just below the tree. Bust left around the corner to a bolted anchor (runout, but easy) or climb past the tree (funky gear here) and over the top. Belay off a good tree about 30' back from the lip.
Location [Suggest Change]
About 100' to the right of the stone staircase, this route lies just past the large rotted dead tree on the ground.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Single rack to 4".
