Access Issue: Potentially unavailable to climbing February through July if raptors are breeding here.
This area is historically used by nesting falcons, hawks, owls or other raptors. Breeding season varies but is roughly February through July. Nesting raptors are protected by law.
If you aren't sure if raptors are breeding here, then listen and watch for defensive behavior such as screeching or diving (links to info). If raptors are breeding in this area please climb somewhere else and let other climbers know.
Pressures on wildlife can be immense and are multiplied by effects of climate change and pollutants. Choosing to climb away from nest sites reduces unnecessary stresses to the birds. Give these animals a chance to thrive.
This one is a GEM. 130ft. that involves crystal pulling (big and small), good sequencing, some spicy bolt spacing, and tops it off with stemming (a little bit at the beginning, and some with great exposure at the end). A must do if you've made your way down to the Ravens.
Located on the downhill side of Raven C as seen in the topos of STL II. Starts by stemming into the chimney and follows the bolt line closest to that chimney.
17 bolts to chain anchors. I would describe this as "adventure" sport climbing as some of the bolt spacing is not what you might be used to if you're hitting up Munchkinland or even The Orifice over at The Fortress.
It takes two ropes to get to the ground if you're using a 60M. Not sure if a 70M would do it either.
