Chariots of Fire
Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The awesome-looking, lichen-covered, overhanging crack above the slab. Although the difficult climbing doesn't last long, the exposure is wild as you commit to the tipped back traverse to the anchor.


Location 

Mosey up the left side of the slab placing gear if you find it or solo up to the first anchor (5.4). After the first anchor the crack looms above and the business begins!


Protection 

Pro to 3" (there's one wide spot). Bolted anchor (Metolius Rap hangers).

This is a great route and would be a classic climb if it was cleaner. There are always good stances to place gear (which ranges from #2 [yellow] metolius to #8 [light purple] metolius). There are finger locks, hand jams, and it's steep; you couldn't ask more from a local trad climb! It's a must for anyone who climbs trad.
