3 out of 5 stars Fun for sure

but not such a great warmup. I think I only had to pull down on a crimp once. It's all body position. You may come down needing to find another warmup exactly the same as when you went up.

3 out of 5 stars Nice Warmup...Not

This felt hard in the morning with it being cold. I offwidthed where i should of been climbing the holds but I didn't want to touch the rock. Didn't start to feel my fingers again for another hour. Look around for where to clip and maybe bring some long runners.

The raven is one of the best (and only i guess) routes Ive climbed at Shelf, and man i loved it. Kinda tricky getting off the deck but once your up there some sweet laybacks and good climbing
