The scenery is....Inconceivable.


A fun route on good holds. It trends left at the beginning, goes straight over the bulge (a little reachy) and then finishes on positive holds to the chains (left again).

An extension continues up and right at 11a and is quite enjoyable. Makes for a longish climb for Blacktail.


Third line from the left.


4 bolts to chains

The extension is dubbed "Inconceivably Busted" and offers no moves harder than .10d or so on good rock. Cut up and right from Inconceivable anchors and follow the crack (Raven Crack) for a couple moves until a cool traverse left on pockets and edges sets you up for the upper headwall and some sweet cranking. It was added in the fall of '02 by Greg Miles and Trevor Bowman.

I must have done it wrong. The first part (Inconceivable) was enjoyable, technical climbing. The second part (Inconceivably busted) felt harder and more powerful than the first half. Quality route all around.
