Fun climb along an obvious line moving up a corner crack through a steepening ripple along the left-facing corner. Climb up to a bolt, then exit up the corner to a shallow groove on low angle slab. Slab climb a sparse bolt line until it abruptly ends, then traverse 25 ft directly right across thick lichen (heady) to a 2-bolt anchor. A 70m rope will just get you down.

I added this to MP to say that this isn't a good climb for the budding 5.8 leader. Sparse bolts and little to no gear except at the bottom and top of the route. 2nd bolt in particular can't be clipped until after the crux, and a fall could be messy if your belayer isn't perfect. Likewise there's a big cheese grater pendulum at the top if you blow it while traversing the lichen. If you're looking for safe 5.8 on bolts check out Perez Highway instead. PG/PG-13


About 50' right of Raven Groove


6 bolts IIRC. Consider bringing a a small selection of gear to protect the opening moves and the heady traverse at the top (small cams).
