Description

Raven Crack is an often overlooked extension to the popular route, Slow and Easy.

P1: Climb slow and easy to the 2 bolt belay. 5.8

P2: Head up and left to the right leaning chimney with ominous looking flakes. Chimney up using finger cracks in the flakes for protection and jams. Continue up the twin cracks on awesome lie backs and finger jams. A very fun and fully sustained pitch. The anchor is 2 fixed nuts and a pin. Lower off here or continue up for a third pitch. 5.9 60'

P3: Step around the corner and into the exposure where an awesome hand crack awaits you. Climb this till you reach the right side of the Duet buttress. Traverse left on easy 4th class to the two bolt belay on Duet Direct. 5.8, 140'

Location

Above Slow and Easy, the prominent right angling hand crack on the left edge of the big wall section

Protection

Standard rack. Doubles in the finger size may be appreciated for the 2nd pitch. Need 2 60M ropes to rappel down Duet Direct.
