Is that Royal Robbins back there?


Lower Raspberry Canyon is so fu*king cool that once down there you'll want to spend the entire day. The area is littered with boulders, cliff band and a few large caves. The rock quality varies just like any area up at Pine. Most of it is bomber, it just needs some cleaning. You'll find everything from epic single-pitch gear routes to v10 boulder problems down there. The routes is adventurous and, for the most part, is completely untapped. This area is for people with a sense of adventure, so if you don't have one, don't go.

Getting There 

The fastest way down is by following the Raspberry Spring Trail to the spring keep going downhill. It will naturally funnel you into the area and takes about 30 minutes.
Getting out is rough.
