Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 Details
This area is closed March 15 - June 30 for peregrine falcon nesting.
DescriptionFound in the awe inspiring chimney between Raven B and Raven C Block Party rises 95ft. Start from the prominent chokestones and stem for 25 feet on dubious rock to the first bolt. From here continue to stem, clipping the second bolt, before finally committing to the vertical face of Raven B. Delicate, interesting, and sometimes mentally committing moves lead to a no hands rest. Savor this rest before engaging the crimps and edges of the crux. From the undercling trend right on Fortress-like rock to the chains.
LocationThis line is located in the chimney between Raven B and Raven C. It starts off the two prominent chockstones.
ProtectionApproximately a dozen quickdraws to a bolted anchor.
The first bolt is approximately 25 feet of the ground. While the climbing is not very hard and includes two massive chockstones, the initial section of rock is abysmal so the leader should move with care. A C4 #0.75 could potentially protect the leader but the flake is of dubious strength.
Overall the route is very safe on quality rock. That said the climbing felt slightly more committing than most modern clip-ups.
