Ryan clipping at the crux 2nd bolt.

Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! MORE INFO >>>


One of the best routes at Carver. It has two solid cruxes and the movement is fantastic. The bottom crux is a powerful move off of a pinch, and the top is a more delicate sequence up the arete. Just be sure not to blow the second clip.

Highly recommended


The first route to the left of the large slab.


5 bolts

this is a great route and it has new bolts.

it's unfortunate they decided to manufacture hold[s] on it.

I'd like to say thanks to the individual who retro bolted this route. I had no idea just how bad the old bolts were. THANK YOU!

I'm curious, where is the manufactured hold/holds? I did notice a pocket/edge high on the route (I think between the 4th & 5th clips) that seemed inconsistent with the rock type, but I didn't think much about it before I read the above comment. Anyway, if there IS a manufactured hold on the route, that's too bad...totally unnecessary, and a buzz kill.

I just cruised this route earlier today! Awesome climb. I'm not sure if that slot was manufactured. Rocks can form in crazy ways. It did seem unusual and out of place based on it's depth/smoothness though. I sure hope not... I used it. Peace.

Best route at Carver. Fun, strenuous moves.

I sent this using the "dummy hold"...found it to be way easier locking down on it and then making a high step with the left heel into the big jug, balancing up, and moving the left hand to the slot..

I didn't find any holds that looked manufactured to me. Fun climbing. The only crux I found for me was going from the finger crack to the jug after the 2nd bolt. That's a big move, and I had trouble consistently hitting it.
