Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! Details

Description

A decent little climb. Solo half-way up the left side of the Chemistry Slab and look for a black painted hanger on the left wall. Clip this and start the traverse. There's a fixed pin shortly after the first bolt, clip it with a quickdraw if you enjoy rope-drag. Make a couple of moves out left to join the last bolt and climbing of Angular Motion. Out On A Limb is a bit spicy as a fall in the middle of the traverse (crux) would put you on or very near the slab behind you. Despite this, it's a fun, worthwhile climb and the necky section only lasts for a move or two. If you don't come down with at least a little bit of yellow lichen on your clothes, you are not doing this climb right.

There is a totally ignored second pitch that's mossed over. Skip it or risk your hide like I did a few years back.

Protection

Two, black painted bolts and an unhelpful fixed piton. Optional gear for the Chemistry Slab.

Onsighted this today. I did not clip the bolt and clipped the pin with a runner and that felt pretty well protected, and I didn't think that it was PG13 at all. Kinda an odd route, but entertaining anyway. Jun 19, 2017
