Description

Rantin' and Raven is 70ft of technical face climbing. Despite its comparatively short stature this line is packed with thin, devious, hard climbing. Numerous restful stances can be had with a bit of creativity, allowing both the mind and body to regroup.

The rock between the second and third bolt shows signs of a broken hold. I am unsure if this is a recent development or not. In its present condition the route still goes but may be slightly harder than the established grade.

Location

Rantin' & Raven is located immediately to the left of If You Bolt It They Will Come on Raven C. It can be identified by the two closely spaced bolts at the start.

To reach Rantin' & Raven hike from the access road to the Ravens on the northeast (left) side. Scramble through the narrow passage between Ravens C and D. Upon exiting the passage the route will be to your right.

Protection

Approximately 9 bolts to a chain anchor.

This route can easily be toproped after climbing If You Bolt It They Will Come since its anchors are used to descend. That said you might as well try to lead it as the falls are clean and the bolts are reasonably close.

This is a fun, tricky, and insecure line. Has some neat, but really hard side pull compression moves. Get on this thing if you want to work your finger strength. Sep 13, 2015
