Comments: Glad to hear it has cleaned up, Chris! This was not the case 5 years ago. How would you compare the difficulties to its neighbor to the left?

Comments: Great warm up and fun hand and fist jams with good feet holds every now and then. Belay takes a few bomber small stoppers on a ramp ledge.

Comments: there was only a single quicklink on each of the anchor bolts. Either someone took the lower-off biners or doesn't mind twisted ropes. I added a dinky rap ring to each though those probably won't last long.

Comments: Robbie revived this hidden gem! Quality climbing for a long pitch, though would work very well to break it up into two short pitches, belaying at the comfy orange scoop ledge (seen in pic below at the treeline). The rock deteriorates a bit the higher you get, though the jams are secure. The tree we rapped from can be seen below too.

Brown Nosing shown below, about 40' left of White Wedding:
The dihedral of White Wedding, including the upper pitch.  Anchor is on ledge just right of bush at the top of the dihedral

Comments: Pre-FA. The vegetation is not there anymore, and the crack cleaned up nicely.

Comments: The first anchor won't interfere with you going to the rim in one pitch, though its probably a few grades harder and pretty dirty in the tips crack above the nice squeeze. I left a short bolt and a fixed nut for an anchor. Bring a shovel if you want to get to the tree.

Comments: Whoa there, Tex...there are plenty of routes in CCC that might not feel like an overbolted outdoor gym. To stereotype it as such is a bit inaccurate.
