BETA PHOTO: This is a fun long route at Red Gate.

Description 

Ravens Reach starts at a roof with a useless belay bolt located 2' off the ground. Start up broken rock past a small roof. Use an extendable to cut down on rope drag. Then climb a long left trending bolt line that follow climbable fetchers all the way to the anchor. I found the crux to be near the end of the route. You can lower straight to the ground and half a second clean the draws.

LOCATION

This is the middle climb on the upper wall at the main craging area.

Protection 

13 bolts, 2 bolt chain anchor

I believe that you can not lower off of this with a 60m rope after climbing, rappel the route with a follow.

I think a 60m rope will do the trick. The rout Ravens Reach may be 32m or so but if you lower down Progression 22m (straight down from the anchor) you should still have a little rope to spare. Tie a stopper until someone can confirm. Same goes for the unknown route located on the wall.
