A tough opening move gains a crack in a left facing corner. From the 3rd bolt, step left and execute cool moves between steep jugs that leads to a power draining, sequential crux. Steady now

The infamous Masque. Continue past the anchor of P1 by launching directly into a nails crux that utilizes tiny crimpers. Followed by sustained climbing that leads to a powerful and technical boulder problem way off the deck, that guards the anchor.

Fun technical 5.11 edge climbing punctuated by nice buckets lead to a great crux before the anchor. *Completely retrobolted (June 2016) by James Blackhall and Greg Tos

FA: Peter Arbic

From the anchors of P1, tackle the powerful head wall to the burly roof. Once over the roof a never ending sea of technicalities awaits, for some time. Hang on and enjoy the view! Absolutely classic and one of the best in the country.

An alternative finish to T.T.H pitch 2, branching right near the top, with a few harder moves. This route seeps the most on the wall and has been described by visiting rockstar Ondra as “unfortunate”.

FFA: Peter Arbic

Climb the funky corner system with a few crimpy moves, until you encounter a technical crux up the top. Shared anchor as Telltale pitch 1.

Climbs the striking beauty Prow/Arête black and silver stripped. Starts up on a small ledge. Hard crimps and sloppers lead to a vicious Boulder problem. Part 1 of the Prow Projext has been sent in July 2016 by Alex Megos at the grade of 5.14b/c.

Set: Peter Arbic

FFA: Alex Megos, Jul 2016

CANADAS FIRST 5.15! Which took Megos 7-8 visits to Ravens for. Easy to spot walking into the crag, as the streaked nature of the line, makes it look like a massive, silver lighting bolt, into the cliff. Extremely delicate moves off micro holds, that look like nothing but dimples of limestone, go up the stunning, sharp streaked prow. The extension above the Orginal Prow Project that was bolted by Peter Arbic. Sonnie Trotter added 10 bolts creating Alex Megos' insane and mega steep, test piece. Another hard Boulder problem (Vhard) consisting of bad slopping dimples and tiny beyond micro-edges and a mad dash to the anchor!

Set: Sonnie Trotter, Jul 2016

FA: Alex Megos, Aug 2016

Project right of Megos’s “Fight Club” lives it’s evil brother.

Set: Sam Tucker

Right of Fight Club P1, starting atop of “Fun Club Ledge”, climbs this power endurance- test piece. Begin with a hard dyno, into a rest, then firing a technical traverse into a sequential pillar. Make sure you didn't get pumped because the true crux lies above with optional big frequent flyers and a stroll to the scenic views at the anchor.

Set: Greg Tos, 2017
