  • Description 

    3 separate headwalls, each a bit harder than the last, give this route a unique mulitlayered feel. Slightly overhanging, each layer serves up fully engaging climbing that's sweet, technical and pumpy.
    5.11 climbers should take time to savor the frosting between each layer.


    Location 

    On the northwest side of Raven A between Bird Food and Rumple Stiltkin.
    Head up the gully between Murray Wall and Raven A. A short 5th class section will put you on top of the obvious huge chock stone. Route starts off the top of the chock stone.


    Protection 

    Bolts, chains

    this climb is loads of fun! i was surprised at how much i enjoyed resting at the top of each "layer", figuring out the upcoming moves, and gunning for it. the top of the climb is tricky and challenging.

    Anchors were lowered on this one to reduce rope drag when lowering. It also makes it a little easier to figure out where to go at the top.
