Access Issue: Potentially unavailable to climbing February through July if raptors are breeding here. Details


Slab climb past a bolt to a three foot horizontal roof. Pull the roof using the namesake crystals. Trend right to encounter an intriguing flow of near featureless stone. Pull through the crux and continue climbing for another 50ft. The near-vertical knob and crystal climbing remains sustained at 5.10 all the way to the chains.

Crystal Ball is a pleasant sustained face climb. The route has a harder crux and is more continuous than its neighbor, Crystal Roof. Both routes reward calm, controlled movement.


Crystal Ball is located on the southeast corner of The Ravelin, the lowest point of the crag. The first three bolts are shared with Crystal Roof. Crystal Ball is the right branch.

This route can be climbed with a 60m rope. Be sure to watch and tie off the end of the rope when lowering.


14 bolts to anchors.
