The start of CC

Description 

This is a short, steep, pocketed route that according to Kyle Vassilopolis is "the area's gold standard for the grade." Follow fun pockets up the steep start to a mid-height crux. Finish with the crack and a traverse left. A stick clip is recommended.


Location 

Go up the steep white bulge just left of a crack (It Came To Pass, 10b gear).


Protection 

Bolts & chains.
