Description:

Located in the middle of the west wall of Raven Rock. The start is the bouldery section with large holds (easier than it looks). Clip four bolts, then "step across" right to the left-facing face. One of the most popular routes at New Jack, for a good reason. 3+ stars.

4 out of 5 stars Fun but maybe a little harder

Felt this was harder than a 10a (and a few others agreed). Getting the first bolt is either dicey on so-so holds, or committing (go high to get to the jugs and clip at your waist). Stick-clip? Also felt the move to full establish after stepping across was more committing/difficult for the grade. Fall here could be bad. Rest was standard 10a.

4 out of 5 stars fun

my buddy was doing this and accidentally pulled off a pretty good sized chunk of rock up higher after the step across. I don't think this will change the grade, but just a heads up to future climbers.

4 out of 5 stars Cool crux

Nice head game on the crux coming over the bulge by the third (?) bolt, gotta trust that toe-crimp combination more than you want to!
