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.
DescriptionThis is possibly the best 5.7 range trad route in the area. It is #18 on the Mormon Hollow general page, but it deserves a name and description! It follows a stunning crack system through a wide variety of holds, from slopers to finger cracks to pocket side-pulls. It is definitely worth climbing. The crux is near the birch tree 2/3rds of the way up.
LocationFrom Tree Crack (past the big dead tree you walk through), walk up into the gully to your right to the base of a slabby boulder. Climb the boulder and traverse over the cave exit up into the crack system.
To get down, either rap off the chains or climb up and come back down a climber's trail in the gully right next to the route. Enter the cave for a fun sidetrack!
