|Pitchoff Chimney Cliff
Though this is Pitchoff's lone sport route among several Adirondack classics, Raging Raven is an absolute must for anyone looking to lighten their rack and have a grand time on a steep line of big holds.
Though, this route is listed as a sport route, a yellow Camalot behind a flake helps protect otherwise unprotected boulder moves off the deck.
Once you've cleared the frustrating initial moves, enjoy the steep and well-bolted face. Just don't make too much noise enroute to the anchor, or you may awaken the ravens' nest to your right!!
Down to the right of the Roaches on the Wall terrace.
Optional yellow Camalot at the start, then Quickdraws to the anchor.

TR'ed this route today after not having climbed it in a while, and I'd like to say, for the record, that it's stout in the grade.

An odd location for one of the best sport climbs I've ever been on.

The initial hold for the first protection is no more there. Should stick clip the first bolt. Maybe a bit harder now.
