Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! MORE INFO >>>


After 30 ft. of scrambling through an overgrown slab, this route finally gets to business at a very thin and powerful crux. It's a bit dirty and it's drilled/chipped, but this is about as tough as it gets at Carver.


Start on the right side of the gully, left of the Angular Motion wall.

not to be negative but this route comes ridiculously close to the route, call to greatness.

I got on it last weekend. It's in desperate need of cleaning, but I'll never get on it again. It has a big drilled pocket to set up for the crux, and overall it's just no fun at all. Be as negative as you like. ;)

Call to Greatness is in need of some serious gardening-- it doesn't look like it's been climbed at all this year.
