Description

The top of the route is marked with a sling around a large pine tree, this is the uppermost anchor. Rappel the route. 5 rappels approximately 100' each lead to the base. We did the raps/route with a 70m rope, but a 60-meter rope should work

Any two pitches can be combined. We combined 1 & 2 and 3 & 4.

The route was named in honor of Raymond Bunker and Steve Williams.

Location

The route climbs the left-hand side of the uppermost slab.

The walk out from the base of the route past the bottom of the Raymond Glade is not recommended.

Protection

All pitches have double bolt anchors and 2 protection bolts except for the 2nd which has 3. The route may feel run out for a 5.5 leader.
One of the bolts on top of the 4th pitch is a spinner.

Note: the sling and rap ring marking the top of the route is missing. Bring a long sling. I did have one to replace it today.

Not sure how it disappeared. Jun 23, 2013

-60m works. Link pitches 2&3 (best pitches) and 4&5 because the belays have ledges for standing. Pitch 5 belay is not comfy.
-Get to summit Raymond + 500 ft of cool limestone slab climbing.
-Bring webbing for tree on top to start the rap (still missing) Aug 28, 2013
