Description [Suggest Change]

3 separate headwalls, each a bit harder than the last, give this route a unique mulitlayered feel. Slightly overhanging, each layer serves up fully engaging climbing that's sweet, technical and pumpy.
5.11 climbers should take time to savor the frosting between each layer.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the northwest side of Raven A between Bird Food and Rumple Stiltkin.
Head up the gully between Murray Wall and Raven A. A short 5th class section will put you on top of the obvious huge chock stone. Route starts off the top of the chock stone.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bolts, chains

this climb is loads of fun! i was surprised at how much i enjoyed resting at the top of each "layer", figuring out the upcoming moves, and gunning for it. the top of the climb is tricky and challenging. Sep 21, 2010
Anchors were lowered on this one to reduce rope drag when lowering. It also makes it a little easier to figure out where to go at the top. Oct 11, 2010

Another slice please! A wonderfully challenging route with great movement on interesting features. While the broken nature of the climbing might keep some away, each layer has enough action that I was thankful for intermissions.

Caution is suggested at the top of the second layer. Three feet to the right of the 7th bolt and likely off route is a massive, head-sized, horn-like rock. I believe it is entirely fractured and flexes when touched. I personally did not try to remove it due to my belayer and dogs below. This feature is not required to climb the route. On my second attempt I stayed plum with the bolt line and came nowhere near it.

10 bolts to leaver biner anchors. Morning shade until ~2pm. With a 70m rope one can rappel to the base bypassing the fifth class scramble and chock stone. Oct 13, 2014
