Access Issue: Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! Details

Description

The awesome-looking, lichen-covered, overhanging crack above the slab. Although the difficult climbing doesn't last long, the exposure is wild as you commit to the tipped back traverse to the anchor.

Location

Mosey up the left side of the slab placing gear if you find it or solo up to the first anchor (5.4). After the first anchor the crack looms above and the business begins!

Protection

Pro to 3" (there's one wide spot). Bolted anchor (Metolius Rap hangers).

This is a great route and would be a classic climb if it was cleaner. There are always good stances to place gear (which ranges from #2 [yellow] metolius to #8 [light purple] metolius). There are finger locks, hand jams, and it's steep; you couldn't ask more from a local trad climb! It's a must for anyone who climbs trad. Jul 6, 2009

Chariots of Fire is really unique and a great challenge. If anyone is interested in top-roping it, you can get to the anchor by climbing both pitches of Rites of Passage, then get lowered about twenty feet and traverse right on a lichen covered ledge. Aim for the little filbert bush and you'll get to the anchor.
