|Raven Rocks North Face "Power Block" Area
Starts on the large boulder right of Espresso, crimpy face climbing up the face of the boulder mantel on to the top of the boulder then, bridge across the gap between the boulder and the adjoining face. More enjoyable climbing up the face on good edges to the anchor.

The start of this route is actually a few routes right of Espresso (right of Holey Moley). The 1st half of the route "the boulder" in a sense is somewhat muddy and not the best quality. Clipping the second bolt certainly gets your attention. Bridging across to the headwall (formation shares with Holey Moley) is pretty nifty and definitely provides better climbing to the summit.
