BETA PHOTO: The well named Sleight of Hand is the right slanti...


Sleight of Hand ascends one of two crack systems just up and left from The Raven. I don't have my guidebook in front of me right now but I'll update this decription with more details when I get to it.

Two pitches, the first is the hard one.


Standard rack.

the first pitch is deffinatley the crux. you climb crackish type rock up into a beautiful right facing corner(30ft?). the corner section is the fun part!! make it through the crux with good gear and continue up to a good spot to belay.

p2. continue straight up into the obvious lichen covered corner and jam and stem your way to the top, there is lots of good pro for an anchor, you just have to find the best options/setup. this route is a good route for shorter/last day climbing. enjoy!!
