Description 

The final boulder found in the Shelf Beach and home to the moderate testpiece and area classic "Rusty Blackbird". The Crow sits close to the woods in an open area just above the other nearby boulders. Its slightly overhanging face greets climbers as they move up from the lower shelf and the tell-tale chalk marks should be obvious. Two warm-up lines are found on either end of the boulder, but the best problems by far head direct up the face.

Getting There 

Head behind the Cliffbrake Boulder and hug the cliff keeping the Whale and Red Knot Boulders to your right. Head up some "stairs" in the rock which lead to a higher shelf and the open area mentioned above. You should see the Crow at the far end of this open section.

From here figure out a way to secure a higher good edge just below the lip and then move into the sloping, difficult top out.This is an area classic with powerful moves through the face and a tenuous top out which requires a complete change of gears. Shorter individuals will have a harder time sticking the upper ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
