Description

Organized Labor is an intriguing line that overhangs approximately 15ft. Begin with a strenuous, technical boulder problem to reach and surmount a dihedral. Nimbly move through featured choss into easier but still pumpy climbing to the chains.

As eluded to above portions of this route are choss. The section around bolts 3 and 4 is particularly suspect. My partner and I pulled off two softball-sized holds and eroded a key foot during an afternoon of attempts. Nevertheless after a couple of runs the rock quality wasn't an issue as I knew what to use and trust.

If I thought I had even the slightest chance of pulling the boulder problem at the start, I would definitely return to this line. For now this route is just another reason to train.

Location

Organized Labor is located on the southeast face of Raven D, which is known as the Union Wall. To reach this route hike downhill past Ravens A through D on the northeast side as you would as reach El Curvo. At Raven D stay close to the wall. This wall sees shade starting around noon.

Protection

Bolts to ring anchors. A stick clip should be considered as the first bolt is 15ft up and requires non-trivial climbing over suspect rock.
