Third route from the left in the corridor between the boulder and the main face.
Difficult tricky start, with good moves and the occasional jug. Easily as good as any route on the Raven Rock formation.


Third route from the left.


5 bolts, closed shut anchor

Definitely the best route on the wall, and also the first one bolted on the wall.

Fun route with good footwork & committing start. I slid off the starting foot holds about 3 times and I had the hand holds! After the start, holds are very positive and interesting.

Feel free to weave in and out of the bolt line on this one. All roads lead to Rome.... Good route, with a bouldery start. The opening moves will be easier if you are tall, and down right cake if you are 7ft plus.....

Thin, technical start to fun jugs on a vertical wall. Fairly sustained, fun climbing.

As good as any 10b in the area. So fun.

Wove a bit on this one. Pretty sustained for most of the climb. Some committing moves. Felt hard for the grade.

For those that are.... about 5.10 or below, there's a rock which give you a boost of 6-8 inches off the start. The one or two moves is still hard (it felt like a v2-v3, depending on how you do it), but that puts it back into the 5.10b range for the route.
