This photo has been placed in the wrong climbing area - should be in the Crescent Rocks (aka Raven Rock) crag in the Northwestern section, not at Raven's Roost in the Central section. Two quite different places...

3 out of 5 stars Glad some other folks have made their way around to this climb. There're several other moderates around in that part of crag as well...

We've got a mix here - his hands are in "No Jam Crack" while his feet are on "Easy Project". So which did he climb?

Wonderful, Bill - thanks for sharing some E-Rock climbing history with us! This section of the Backside - Ambulance Blues over to Bold Talk - is probably my favorite section of the park: great climbs but always quiet and unfrequented...

Glad you had fun on this route. First route I've ever put bolts in (placed on lead, with a hand drill).

Unless, of course, you prefer nice granite. There are a dozen routes on this crag, up to a full pitch in height. Easy access, and the crag is in the national forest.

This is the east end of "Overlook Buttress" - definitely not the easiest one to access, except via one of the eastern South Slab routes, i.e., you can't walk up to the base of this.

Yup, this is not a shot of the main Blackrock ridge...

Indeed, 'cause he's following the ridiculous line given in the VA/MD/WV guidebook - as opposed to looking for around for something better...look west, young man, look west....
