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


Despite this route's short stature, it as the name implies challenging. Begin on easy slab climbing to the first bolt where big moves on small incut holds await. Move past two more bolts up and left or head right after the third into an enjoyable undercling.


Furthest bolted line to the right


Three bolts and bolt anchor.

Definitely a short, challenging, route! Lots of good moves though.

Though it looks neglected, most of the foot & handholds are clean. Fun little climb.

Sweet little climb, and a lot of punch for just three bolts.

Portland Rock Climbing book suggests optional small pro for the easy slab climbing prior to the first bolt. At first I didn't think that was necessary, as the climbing to the bolt is so gentle.

Realized after missing the crux move a couple times (right after the first bolt) and getting flossed by the rope, that maybe the optional pro was more for rope management than fall protection.

A small nut or BD .1 X4 could save you from rope burn in some unfortunate places.
