About Ra:

Now mostly sport bolted, but don't let that fool you - expect an alpine experience! The bolts are in good rock, but be very careful what you pull and stand on. The mix of granite and gneiss here is very variable in quality, and seems to be constantly exfoliating. Wear a helmet! With that said, there is some superb multipitch sport here.
Approach: Go 3.2 miles past the second light in Empire, and then park in a large dirt pullout on the left. Cross the highway and follow the trail uphill, up a long talus field, until you get to a little bit of a platform in the Talus, and you see a bunch of bolted steep routes on your left. You're there!
