Description:

This is a really long and varied route. If you get past clipping the third bolt, you'll finish the route. There are some huge, somewhat questionable flakes midway, and I would recommend climbing extra delicately so as not to dislodge them on your belayer. The route ends up an amazing dihedral. First route left of Choss Revolution.

Descent Options:

Rappel to intermediary anchors, pull rope and then rappel to ground. 70m rope won't reach from top.

4 out of 5 stars Long

Fun. 70 meter strrrrretcher. You'll watch the half way point on your 70 meter pass by your belay device before your leader gets to the top.

3 out of 5 stars fun w/ bouldery crux.

2nd go. Crux is 3rd bolt. Not too bad. Redpoint crux is crimps over the roof near the end.

3 out of 5 stars tough for a Quarry 11c

Previously got shut down at the third bolt - today came back and worked it over. Took a couple of big whippers, but got to the top. Note that our 70m rope was too short to lower off by 25 feet or so. To lead and then be lowered off the anchors to the ground one probably needs an 80m or so rope. There is no good hold to clip the third bolt by, so I had to climb above it and clip it below my waist - potential deck. The top 1/3rd of the route was *very* sandy/dirty - maybe because there was a recent heavy rain, or maybe because few people climb it. Its less dirty now. If Raging Raptor can be compared to a chess match, this route would be a street brawl.

4 out of 5 stars Long and Fun!

This is a great route with a scary crux clipping the third bolt (potential deck fall) and another 2/3's of the way up where you have several crimps in a row!!!! Then you finish the route in an amazing dihedral, one that seems almost out of place at the quarry! The rating is a bouldery 5.11c.
